As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    3 The xTEA algorithm may not be right implemented. There are two different
    4 behaved implementations, because the specification is not clear. I assumed
    5 that the C code in the specification is right, so in mcrypt xtea behaves
    6 exactly as the code shown in the specification. The different approach
    7 is the code in ftp.funet.fi which seems to be more rational than the
    8 code in the specification. But since there is no indication of the author of
    9 that code I decided not to adopt this version, and I assumed that the
   10 C specification is right.
