decode_rs8: Decode codeword (8bit data width)

NAME

decode_rs8 - Decode codeword (8bit data width)

SYNOPSIS

int decode_rs8(struct rs_control rs, uint8_t data, uint16_t par, int len, uint16_t s, int no_eras, int eras_pos, uint16_t invmsk, uint16_t corr);

ARGUMENTS

rs

the rs control structure

data

data field of a given type

par

received parity data field

len

data length

s

syndrome data field (if NULL, syndrome is calculated)

no_eras

number of erasures

eras_pos

position of erasures, can be NULL

invmsk

invert data mask (will be xored on data, not on parity!)

corr

buffer to store correction bitmask on eras_pos

DESCRIPTION

The syndrome and parity uses a uint16_t data type to enable symbol size > 8. The calling code must take care of decoding of the syndrome result and the received parity before calling this code. Returns the number of corrected bits or -EBADMSG for uncorrectable errors.
