System object: comm.RSEncoder
Encode data using a Reed-Solomon encoder
Y = step(H,X)
Y = step(H,X) encodes the numeric column input data vector, X, and returns the encoded data, Y. The value of the BitInput property determines whether X is a vector of integers or bits with a numeric, logical, or fixed-point data type. The MessageLength property affects the expected length of X. The PuncturePatternSource and PuncturePattern properties affect the length of Y.
Note: The object performs an initialization the first time the step method is executed. This initialization locks nontunable properties and input specifications, such as dimensions, complexity, and data type of the input data. If you change a nontunable property or an input specification, the System object™ issues an error. To change nontunable properties or inputs, you must first call the release method to unlock the object.
