Extended or Lengthened BCH Codes (Additions)

In [1], Bierbrauer and Edel show how BCH codes can be lengthened and extended using construction X and construction XX.

The paper lists parameters of codes over F2, F3, and F4. MinT includes additional codes which were constructed by Edel using the same method. These codes are marked with the comment “additions” in MinT.
