Techniques for error detection and error correction are often, although not always, related. All work on the idea of creating space between valid coded messages. With error correction, however, more space is generally required as is some mechanism for finding the nearest valid message to a corrupted one. Error detection provides a gentle introduction into practical coding and two techniques are examined. Both techniques can be applied to error correction and provide the ideal starting point.
