A Note on Encoded Files
This package contains one or more Mathematica input files which are encoded. Those files
cannot be read or modified directly as plain text, but can be loaded into
Mathematica just like any normal input file (i.e., with
There is no need (and also no way) to decode them by using additional software
or a special key.
If loading an encoded file causes a syntax error, open it with a
text editor and remove any blank lines at the beginning (for some
reason your Mac could have inserted them silently...).
