****** This is the challenge ********

Data has to be encoded(lossless) to provide an output with nonrepeating chars...

Example: (*with base16)

8B2A84CD232D7F2A

The above set of chars must be encoded into an output with all chars of the hexadecimal system i.e. 0-F

A secondary output may be produced which helps to decode the primary o/p...

*The secondary o/p must be as small as possible..

In fact THE MINIMUM LENGTH OF THE SECONDARY OUTPUT ONE CAN COME UP WITH IS THE CHALLENGE!!!

Al the best..
