data2inc - Free Pascal binary to pascal include file converter.
data2inc [-ABSVH] msgfile [incfile] [constname]
data2inc reads a binary or text file and converts it to a pascal typed
constant declaration. The constant is an array of characters (zero based), in
which each character's ascii value is the value of the byte at the offset
index in the binary file. (index is the index in the array). If the
input file is a text file, options will be read from the file and an output
file will be generated according to the options encountered.
data2inc with the -B option accepts a filename of a binary file,
and needs the name of an include file and constant name. The output is written
to incfile The name of the constant constname is mandatory for a
data2inc without -B option takes the name of a
message description file as input. It will process the message file and
write the output as described in the message file to incfile
data2inc has a small number of options to control its behaviour:
- Write bytes instead of characters. The constant array will be an array of
byte instead of an array of char.
- If this option is given, the msgfile will be treated as a binary
- emit a small helptext.
- data2inc will write the output as an array of strings, or a 2
dimensional array of characters.
- Show the version number and exit.
