Leco - ECC using Linear Erasure Codes


Leco is a program to calculate a certain type of error correction codes (linear erasure codes).

In encoding mode leco processes a data file and produces an ECC file. Various parameters that affect the ECC file size, the error correction granularity (block size) and memory consumption can be set.

In decoding mode leco processes a data file (possibly containing errors) and an ECC file and produces a corrected output file.


Calculate a 64M ECC file for a given data file:

$ leco -e -n 1024 -s 64M input.dat output.erc

Correcting a damaged file:

$ leco -d input.bad input.erc output.dat
