The fountain package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Fountain codes are forward error correction codes for erasure channels. They are able to recover lost packets without needing 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.
