fountain: A fountain codec.

[ bsd3, codec, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Fountain codes are forward error correction codes for erasure channels. They are able to recover lost packets without needed a backchannel. As a rateless code, transmitters generate packets at random, on the fly. Receivers then listen to as many packets as needed to reconstruct the message.
