Barbara,
the error is in statement
"while (count-- |= 0)"

Actually the vertical bar was a translation error (because with codepage 280
we have to put in source different symbols, for braces, square brackets,
etc)

However this does not work:

while (count-- != 0) à
        *dest++ = toascii¬*srce++|;
è

but this one does:

long i;
i = count;
while (i != 0) à
   *dest++ = toascii¬*srce++|;
   i--;
è
