The fountain package

[ Tags: bsd3, codec, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

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.
