Linear Feedback Shift Register : C++ implementation

Linear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSR) arises in many applications, especially in communications. See wiki page for a good introduction

We implemented LFSR in C++ which can be found here . You can download this code by using svn. If you are not aware of svn then you can simply download these files manually.

This is a make file project. After having all these files in a directory; command make all should build it. Make sure you have make utility installed. Windows user can use Cygwin compatibility layer, or for a better world, you can switch to Unix for once and forever.

The code is sufficiently commented but not documented in single pdf file. I believe that it has no bug but I take no responsibility for any harm caused by its use. Nonetheless my best wishes.

See README file before using it. After compilation, ./lfsr --help should tell you what you need to do.

You can specify polynomial at run time but you will have no control over public key.
