I hope I'm not committing a crime by doing this but here ya go bunkie:

     /*     efdtt.c     Author:  Charles M. Hannum
     <root at>             */
     /*     Thanks to Phil Carmody <fatphil at> for additional
     tweaks.    */
     /*     Length:  434 bytes (excluding unnecessary
     newlines)                 */
     /*     Usage is:  cat title-key scrambled.vob | efdtt
     >clear.vob           */

     #define m(i)(x[i]^s[i+84])<<
     unsigned char




Also I since read that this solution decodes much faster than real-time while the
Perl solution is "jerky" to say the least.
