[RC5] win 3.x flush problem

Well... my best idea is to create a batch file that goes...

rc564 -update -in buff-in.001 -out buff-out.001
rc564 -update -in buff-in.002 -out buff-out.002
rc564 -update -in buff-in.003 -out buff-out.003
.
.
rc564 -update -in buff-in.038 -out buff-out.038
rc564 -update -in buff-in.039 -out buff-out.039
rc564 -update -in buff-in.040 -out buff-out.040

Pain in the butt? Yeah... (unless you write a simple basic program to do
it... or you might be able to get it out of excel...) but still not bad ( 
you
could probably create the file in less than 5 minutes... use cut and 
paste!
:) )

Mooo!
dB!
