Modules Used in LDPC Programs

You may need to familiarize yourself with the modules documented here in order to modify the LDPC programs. These modules may also be useful for other purposes.

Click on the title of a module below for general information, or on specific routines for detailed documentation.

Dense modulo-2 matrix routines:

Each of the modules above has a test program, called module-test. These programs are compiled by the command

make tests 
See the source files for these test programs for further information.
