Enumerative coding is an attractive algorithmic procedure for translating long source words into code-words and vice versa. The usage long codewords makes it possible to approach a code rate which is as close as desired to Shannon's noiseless capacity of the constrained channel. Enumerative encoding is prone to massive error propagation as a single bit error could ruin entire decoded words. This contribution will evaluate the effects of error propagation of the enumerative coding of runlength limited sequences.
