A specific method of programming a digital computer to construct and evaluate codes suitable for use in a burst-error correction decoding scheme, described in the Tenth Scientific Report AD-286 304, is presented. Two 100, 50 codes of this type were constructed using the methods described. One is found capable of correcting uniquely all bursts of length 21 or less. The method used to evaluate burst-error correcting capabilities is applicable to any group code, not just the class under consideration. Memory limitations have restricted the present program to code lengths not exceeding 105 digits, of which at most 63 may be check digits.
