We introduce the notion of degree of imperfection of a code in Z(n) with the l(p) metric, to extend the so-called quasi-perfect codes. Through the establishment of bounds and computational approach, we determine all radii for which there are linear quasi-perfect codes for p = 2 and n = 2, 3. Numerical results concerning the codes with small degree of imperfection are also presented. (AU)
