Kodo-Reed-Solomon Documentation

The kodo-reed-solomon library implements a traditional Reed-Solomon (RS) code based on the kodo-core library. The implementation uses a systematic Cauchy RS matrix over GF(2^8).

The kodo-reed-solomon repository: https://github.com/steinwurf/kodo-reed-solomon

The examples folder contains some programs that demonstrate the usage of the available API.
