Detailed Description

Contains a literal and its location in the input.

This structure is used by encoders to get a glimpse at the literals it will receive. The encoder is given a stream of literals and their occurences in the compressed text. This information can be used to initialize data structures that can be used for efficient encoding, e.g. a Huffman tree or a k-mer dictionary.
