We present an algorithm for demultiplexing cosmic ray events in the MINOS far detector. We tested the
algorithm on 72910 cosmic ray events from the detector. The algorithm successfully reconstructs 94% of
the digits correctly, and 97% of the events pass a figure of merit cut. We also present
the code's performance on a variety of machines, and show that on a modest computer it takes
on average about 2 seconds per event to run.
