char input[48];
char output[4];
int i;

for (i=0; i<48; i+=4){
output[0] ^= input[i];
output[1]^=input[i+1];
output[2]^=input[i+2];
output[3]"=input[i+3];
};

or did you want something fancier??

etc, etc, as long as it isn't homwwork. If it is, forget that you read that.

















Actually, if it is homework, best not use these, as your prof will see immediately that the code is far too advanced for you to have written. Of course, if it isn't, just plug the code in & use it.
