1. Error Detection and Correction

Hi,
I am making an application for "The Hamming Code". I am having some problems I don't understand how to do this. The user can only put up to 5 characters. then the user will put the bit to flip.the output should look something like this:

Code:
```Input a word to transmit: B <enter>
Input a bit to flip: 12 <enter>
Processing…
- Transmitting character "B" with binary code 0100 0010
- The parity bits are:
Bit 1 2 4 8
1 1 1 0
- The encoded array is:
Bit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
1 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0
Sending….
It is being corrupted by flipping bit 9.
- The corrupted array is:
Bit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
1 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0
The corrupted character at destination is "C"
The checksum for parity bits is:
Bit 1 2 4 8
1 1 0 0
The corrected character is "B"```
I can read the chracter and convert it to binary but I am stuck afterwards.
Code:
```#include <stdio.h>
char ascitobinary();

int main(void){
ascitobinary();
}
char ascitobinary(){
char	x ;
int 	y;
printf("Input a word to transmit: " );
scanf("%c",&x);
for(y = 0; y < sizeof(char) * 15; y++)
printf("%c ", ( x & (1 << y) ) ? '1' : '0' );
puts("");
return 0;

}```
Thanks alot for help.

2. I don't need the solution just a good start.

3. Try saving the converted binary into an array or similar structure. Then displaying and flipping will be easy.

4. how do I store that in two dimensional array?

5. Why would you use a 2D array?

6. this is a requirement of my assign.
