(Huffman coding example, codex.m) Open the code codex.m using the editor. Note
“m” parameter which indicates the number of simulated symbols in array “x”.
1. Determine the size of encoded binary sequence in array “cx”. Calculate the compression
ratio in comparison with no-encoding scenario, when each symbol is encoded by two
2. Compute the number of bits per symbol, i.e. the ratio of lengths for arrays “cx” and “x”.
Compare with the theoretical number of bits per symbol as in notes example on pages

%codex.m example of Huffman coding and decoding
m=1000; % number of code words
% codex.m step 1: generate a 4-PAM sequence
% with probabilities 0.5, 0.25, 0.125, and 0.125
for i=1:m
if r<0.5, x(i)=+1; end
if (r>=0.5) & (r<0.75), x(i)=-1; end
if (r>=0.75) & (r<0.875), x(i)=+3; end
if r>=0.875, x(i)=-3; end
% codex.m step 2: encode the sequence using Huffman code
for i=1:m
if x(i)==+1, cx(j:j)=[1]; j=j+1; end
if x(i)==-1, cx(j:j+1)=[0,1]; j=j+2; end
if x(i)==+3, cx(j:j+2)=[0,0,1]; j=j+3; end
if x(i)==-3, cx(j:j+2)=[0,0,0]; j=j+3; end
% codex.m step 3: decode the variable length sequence
j=1; i=1;
while i<=length(cx)
if cx(i:i)==[1], y(j)=+1; i=i+1; j=j+1;
elseif cx(i:i+1)==[0,1], y(j)=-1; i=i+2; j=j+1;
elseif cx(i:i+2)==[0,0,1], y(j)=+3; i=i+3; j=j+1;
elseif cx(i:i+2)==[0,0,0], y(j)=-3; i=i+3; j=j+1; end

No error when I run your code.
Perhaps you had left-over variables in the workspace.
