BCH decoder

attempts to decode the received signal in `decoded`

= bchdec(`code`

,`N`

,`K`

) `code`

using an
(`N`

,`K`

) BCH decoder with the
narrow-sense generator polynomial. Parity symbols are at the end and the leftmost
symbol is the most significant symbol.

In the `decoded`

Galois field array, each row represents the
attempt at decoding the corresponding row in `code`

.

`bchdec`

uses the Berlekamp-Massey decoding algorithm. For
information about this algorithm, see the works listed in References.
