E.1.2 Encrypted Syntax Files

An encrypted syntax file uses SPS as the identifier in its header.

Before encryption, a syntax file is prefixed with a line at the beginning of the form * Encoding: encoding., where encoding is the encoding used for the rest of the file, e.g. windows-1252. The syntax file is then appended with as many bytes with value 04 as needed (possibly zero) to make it a multiple of 16 bytes in length.
