Section Appendix A says:

* @return: a numeric String in base 10 that includes
*              {@link truncationDigits} digits

It should say:

* @return: a numeric String in base 10 that includes
*              {@link DIGITS_POWER} digits

Notes:

The JavaDoc for the functions refers to truncationDigits, which doesn't exist in the example code. I think the authors mean the DIGITS_POWER array.

Note that this happens four times for the four different versions of the generateTOTP() method.
