A simple (very crude) c++ command-line program to deXOR iplayer files.

Save the following code (in a plain-text file) as iplayerdexor.cpp and then compile (on any *nix) with:

g++ iplayerdexor.cpp -o iplayerdexor

// iplayerdexor: Simple (crude) command-line program to clean XORd iplayer files
// Compile with: g++ iplayerdexor.cpp -o iplayerdexor

// This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, not even a /little bit/!
