= The Xexor ARC file format =
Xexor is a powerful disc utility written by Richard Wilson for the Amstrad CPC/CPC+.
This will create a file called "disc.arc" which will contain the data from tracks 1 to 13 inclusive.
== Structure of the "ARC" file ==
The "ARC" file is a binary file and will have an AMSDOS header.
9 means same byte for entire sector? 80 is the byte? then there is no compressed sector data
== Compression scheme ==
The compression method is "run length encoding".
