  • yhs

    This is a TEST release and is good for testing only.
    Please test it with a bunch of files and errors and report any results
    (include the pkt.log files with your message) on the pkt.sf.net forum.
    This release has the following limitations (will be removed soon) :
    - no encryption/decrpytion/compression/decompression
    - all packets generated are saved uncompressed
    - no optimizations...will be slow
    - fixed parity generation (8.5% protection) with fixed LDPC matrix
    - all directories specified are scanned recursively
    Some improvements over parchive :
    - No packet number limitations
    - No concept of volumes .. every packet found will be recursively processed
    - Simpler archive format with no limitations
    - Potentially faster algorithm
    - More optimal algorithm (approaches within 0.5db of theoretical limits)
    - Smaller memory footprint
