GAP Package GUAVA

GUAVA is a GAP package for computing with codes. GUAVA can construct unrestricted (non-linear), linear and cyclic codes; transform one code into another (for example by puncturing); construct a new code from two other codes (using direct sums for example); perform decoding/error-correction; and can calculate important data of codes (such as the minumim distance or covering radius) quickly. Limited ability to compute algebraic geometric codes.

The current version of this package is version 3.13. For more information, please refer to the package manual. There is also a README file and the former webpage used for releases up to GUAVA 3.13 inclusive.
