Getting Started
Build the demo by typing "make" at the command-line. If that doesn't
work, manually build a program from demo.c and all *.c and *.cpp files
in fex/, 7z_C/, and zlib/. Run demo with in the same directory.
To enable RAR archive support, edit fex/blargg_config.h.
See fex.h for reference and fex.txt for documentation.
