NAME

       init_rs - Find a matching or allocate a new rs control structure

SYNOPSIS

       struct rs_control * init_rs  (int symsize, int gfpoly, int fcr,
                                        int prim, int nroots);

ARGUMENTS

       symsize
              the symbol size (number of bits)

       gfpoly the extended Galois  field  generator  polynomial  coefficients,
              with  the  0th  coefficient in the low order bit. The polynomial
              must be primitive;

       fcr    the first consecutive root of the rs code  generator  polynomial
              in index form

       prim   primitive element to generate polynomial roots

       nroots RS code generator polynomial degree (number of roots)
