The function comp() can be used for compression.The compression logic for comp() should provide the fact that ASCII only uses the bottom (least significant) seven bits of an 8-bit byte. The compression logic should simply squeeze out the 8th bit.

Algorithm:The program should consider the output to be a stream of bits and the 7 data bits from each input byte should simply be sent to the output bit stream, with the 8th bit being discarded. The 7 data bits should be sent to the output stream in order of increasing significance, bit 0 (least significant) first, bit 1 next, and so on.
