About Decode Lengths:
Variable-length 
-    Decode symbols containing any number of characters:
-    Set both Length1 and Length2 to "0" (zero)

Range 
-    Decode a symbol with a specific length range from a-b (inclusive):
-    Set Length1 to "a" (the lower bound) and set Length2 to "b" (the upper bound)

Two Discrete Lengths
-    Decode only symbols containing either of two specific lengths:
-    Set Length2 as the shorter length and Length1 as the longer one

One Discrete Length
-    Decode only symbols containing a specific length:
-    Set both Length1 and Length2 to the desired (non-zero) length
