## Abstract in another language

In this short note we state how we construct new good linear codes C over the finite field with q elements. We start with already good (= high minimum distance d for given length n and dimension k) codes which we got for example by our method [2,3,4,5]. The advantage of this method is that we explictly get the words of minimum weight d. We try to extend the generator matrix of C by adding

columns with the property that at least s of the letters added to the codewords are different from 0. Using this we know that the minimum distance of the extended code is d + s as long as the second smallest weight was ≥ d + s.
