In this paper we introduce the concepts of k-p-in x codes, n-k-ps-in x languages, n-k-in xout x codes, and n-k-pre x-su x languages, which are natural generalizations of our previous work on k-pre x codes, k-in x codes and so on. We obtain several properties of k-p-in x codes and semaphore codes. The relations and hierarchies of k-p-in x codes,(More)
