/* ecc.c
	Basic Software Tool for Encoding and Decoding Files.

	This is a simple stream encoder which uses the rslib routines to
	do something practical.  It reads data from stdin in 248(encode) or
	256(decode) blocks, and writes the corresponding encoded/decoded
	block onto stdout.  An encoded block contains 248 data bytes, one
	length byte, six redundancy bytes, and a capital G byte as a sync
	marker to round it out to 256 bytes.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
/* Also uses rslib.c and version.c */
