Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-09-29 19:50:42 EDT
Past experience indicates that a comment
/* 24 is enough because tab13 has max. a 19 bit huffvector */
in mpg123 is telling a truth and you do not really want 56-bit shifts.
At least attached patch is needed although an explicit use of a type
with a guaranteed witdh, like u32, would be even better.
Also Makefile has to be modified.

I cannot test it right now with new libraries but most likely other
attached changes will be also beneficial.  The patch mentioned above
is in the last section.
