A novel construction that differs from the traditional way of constructing systematic EC/AUED/(error-correcting/all unidirectional error-detecting) codes is presented. The usual method is to take a systematic t-error-correcting code and then append a tail so that the code can detect more than t errors when they are unidirectional. In the authors' construction, the t-error-correcting code is modified in such a way that the weight distribution of the original code is reduced. The authors then have to add a smaller tail. Frequently they have less redundancy than the best available systematic t-EC/AUED codes.
