ECC wrapper using Vandermonde matrices based FEC
VDMFEC implements Block ECC using a Forward Error Correction FEC code based on Vandermonde VDM matrices in GF2^8 due to Luigi Rizzo.
Its primary application is intended to be in recovering data from unreliable media such as diskettes. Another example is wrapping ‘zfs send’ streams before dumping onto tape.
