We use coding theory to study the internal structure of simple groups. Coding theory deals with methods of constructing and analyzing error-correcting codes. In this paper, we construct all binary linear codes from  and determine their properties. We link these codes to designs and graphs.We develop the algorithm that determine these codes and add the algorithm to the Magma software.
