Proofish -- here's the code

It looks to me like they're using a Huffman coding. Here's the source code from dcraw.

See the routine "nikon_compressed_load_raw".

Now why in the world would anyone use a huffman code in any way that was not truly lossless?? It's not an approximate method. I don't know how you could use huffman for lossy encoding unless you lossied up the data before doing the huffman coding.
