Possibilistic information theory is a flexible approach to old and new forms of coding; it is based on possibilities and patterns, rather than pointwise probabilities and traditional statistics. Here we fill up a gap of the possibilistic approach, and extend it to the case of error detection, while so far only error correction had been considered.
