NAME

       decode_rs8 - Decode codeword (8bit data width)

SYNOPSIS

       int decode_rs8  (struct rs_control * rs, uint8_t * data,
                         uint16_t * par, int len, uint16_t * s, int no_eras,
                         int * eras_pos, uint16_t invmsk, uint16_t * corr);

ARGUMENTS

       rs     the rs control structure

       data   data field of a given type

       par    received parity data field

       len    data length

       s      syndrome data field (if NULL, syndrome is calculated)

       no_eras
              number of erasures

       eras_pos
              position of erasures, can be NULL

       invmsk invert data mask (will be xored on data, not on parity!)

       corr   buffer to store correction bitmask on eras_pos

DESCRIPTION

       The syndrome and parity uses a uint16_t data type to enable symbol size
       > 8. The calling code must take care of decoding of the syndrome result
       and the received parity before calling this code.
