Hamming Code and Error Correction

Now let's try again with a more concrete example. Type in some text below; it will be transposed into binary and then coded using the Hamming code that we just saw.

Do some random bit flipping. You can see the corrupted bits as * again in the Flipped window; and the 0 or 1 in the Altered window. Below that you see the corrected binary again, and below that the corresponding text. Please, input some words below and press return.
