Erasure Decoding using Reed Solomon Codec

Started by Ritesh April 21, 2005
Hi!!!

Can somebody Please provide me with a reliable source for studding and
implementing a Reed Solomon Decoder capable of correcting Erasures?

I have already implemented the syndrome detector, the Erasure
Polynomial, Berlekamp � Massey Algorithm and the program (written in C
using VC++) is capable of finding the correct error / erasure locator
polynomial but for some reason the (Modified) Forney Algorithm does
not work. I need a good source (and lot of examples) to study Forney
Algorithm and implemented.

Your Advice and Time is Highly Appreciated.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Ritesh
