Original Text
-------------
encrypted_message +=  block ^ key_stream
...
encrypted_message += (block^key_stream)[0..len(plaintext)%64]

Corrected Text
--------------
encrypted_message |= block ^ key_stream

-----
The encrypted_message is the result of concatenation of blocks.
"|" and "|=" are used for concatenation elsewhere in the document, changing "+=" to "|=" will reduce ambiguity.
