[Beowulf] "Code" vs. "Codes"

I appreciate everyone's comments so far, but please
keep in mind that I only meant to comment on the
use of "codes" (plural). The use of "code" in place
of "program" feels normal.

I still suspect that somewhere this started with
a non-native speaker of English. The same thing
has happened recently with "e-mail", which didn't
used to exist in common usage in plural form.
Now you see "e-mails" used by all kinds of people.

Cordially,
