Claims to encode, anyway. decode is as you'd expect 


I've compiled them both successfully and managed to 
encode and then decode a file safely. Minor problem
was the fact that the code uses a very long string to initialize - 
lynx inserted a line break on download, which wreaked havoc.

Roger - do you want stuff like this in the cvs tree? where?
some kind of utils directory?
