Bound on Codes from Brouwer’s Database

Andries E. Brouwer’s online database of code parameters (, see also [1]) contains upper and lower bounds on the minimum distance of linear [s, n]-codes, with information available for codes up to a certain length s:

Size of base field2345789
Maximal s25724325613050130130

Since MinT does not evaluate the information about the construction method provided by Brouwer’s database, all codes are assumed to be non-constructive and all bounds are assumed to be applicable only to linear codes.
