Convert between ASCII, hexadecimal and binary representations
DescriptionThis package contains:
* ascii2binary reads input consisting of ascii or hexadecimal representation
numbers separated by whitespace and produces as output the binary
equivalents. The type and precision of the binary output is selected
using command line flags.
* binary2ascii reads input consisting of binary numbers and converts
them to their ascii or hexadecimal representation.
Command line flags specify the type and size of the binary numbers
and provide control over the format of the output.
Unsigned integers may be written out in binary, octal, decimal,
Signed integers may be written out only in binary or decimal. Floating
point numbers may be written out only decimal, either in standard or
scientific notation. (If you want to examine the binary representation
of floating point numbers, just treat the input as a sequence of unsigned
characters.)The two programs are useful for generating test data, for inspecting binary files, and for interfacing programs that generate textual output to programs that require binary input and conversely. They can also be useful when it is desired to reformat numbers.
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
