"This book is the first to be devoted exclusively to error-detecting and error-correcting codes for information transmission and storage systems. Some of the material has never been published before." Computer coding / programming evolved from very early punch card and magnetic tape, to actual languages which were read, compiled and interpreted by the computers starting in the early 1950's. These early languages were invented on a one-off basis by programmers who were employed by each corporation (IBM, Sperry-Rand, etc) for a specific computer and a specific use. It wasn't until the mid 1950's, with the invention of FORTRAN that a program became able multi-functional and less time-consuming to code. This particular book looks at dealing with programming errors for a number of early code styles (including Algebraic, Linear, Polynomial Rings and Galois Fields, Linear Switching, Cyclic codes, Bose-Chaudhuri, Hamming, Golay, MacDonald, and Reed-Muller codes). And is one of the first books published on the subject.
