That will certainly work. But from your earlier email:

I'll bet that all you would have needed to do was byte swap each pair
of bytes starting with 0x81 0xff. My guess is that the Zodiac tool
is extracting 2-byte words and dumping them to you in big-endian order --
because that's how we as humans normally like to read numbers.
