Finite completion of comma-free codes. Part 2
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Volume 38 (2004) no. 2, pp. 117-136.

This paper is a sequel to an earlier paper of the present author, in which it was proved that every finite comma-free code is embedded into a so-called (finite) canonical comma-free code. In this paper, it is proved that every (finite) canonical comma-free code is embedded into a finite maximal comma-free code, which thus achieves the conclusion that every finite comma-free code has finite completions.
