We investigate general properties of rectangular codes. The class of rectangular codes includes all linear, group, and many non-group codes. We define a basis of a rectangular code. This basis gives a universal description of a rectangular code. The rectangular algebra is defined. We show that all bases of a length-2 rectangular code have the same cardinality. Bounds on cardinality of a basis of a rectangular code are given. We present a simple procedure to get rectangular basis of a linear code from its generator matrix.
