Short:    explode.library 7.0, 68040/60 bugfix
Author:   calkowsk@usctoux1.cto.us.edu.pl (Grzegorz Calkowski)
Uploader: calkowsk@usctoux1.cto.us.edu.pl     
Type:     util/libs

explode.library 7.0
-------------------

This is a bug-fix of the explode.library, library needed by executables
crunched with TurboImploder - old but still the best cruncher for executables.
However, the library has a bug hidden for nearly 5 years!  Although authors
claim that decrunching routines are aware of 68040's copyback mode - this is
not truth!  They clear caches ONLY when an executable calls the decrunching
routine of explode.library directly.  However, after the library has patched
LoadSeg() and NewLoadSeg() vectors...  pooof!  That's no longer the case!  In
effect, small files, when imploded, can randomly crash on 040 machines.  This
also applies to 68060 CPU, which has even bigger datacache.

As I still use TurboImploder I decided to disasemble it and fix the bug :) Also
I removed 1.3 support code and did few optimizations, what made the library
slightly shorter.

This version is based on explode.library 6.0.64 (28.10.91!!) by Peter Struijk
and Albert J.Brouwer.  I hope I didn't violate copyright by releasing this
bug-fix ;)
