NAME

       encode_rs8 - Calculate the parity for data values (8bit data width)

SYNOPSIS

       int encode_rs8  (struct rs_control * rs, uint8_t * data, int len,
                         uint16_t * par, uint16_t invmsk);

ARGUMENTS

       rs     the rs control structure

       data   data field of a given type

       len    data length

       par    parity data, must be initialized by caller (usually all 0)

       invmsk invert data mask (will be xored on data)

DESCRIPTION

       The parity uses a uint16_t data type to enable symbol  size  >  8.  The
       calling  code  must  take  care  of encoding of the syndrome result for
       storage itself.
