bin2obj - The Free Pascal binary to pascal include file converter.
bin2obj [-aeouUz] -c constname infile
reads a binary file and converts it to a pascal typed constant declaration.
The constant is an array of bytes (zero based), in which each byte has the
value of the byte at the offset
in the file. (index is the index in the array).
accepts a filename of a binary file, and needs the name of a constant
option). The output goes to standard output by default. If no unitname is
given, the output will be in the form of code which can be written to an
bin2obj has a small number of options to control its behaviour:
Write ASCII data instead of bytes. The constant array will be an array of
char instead of an array of bytes. The bytes will be written as ASCII
- -e key
If this option is given, the data will be encrypted with
which is a string of 8 characters long.
emit a small helptext.
- -o filename
By default, the output goes to standard output (the screen). If this option is given,
will write the output to a file with name
instead. This option is mandatory if the
option is specified.
- -u [unitname]
This option tells
to generate a unit. By default the output is just the declaration of the
constant. If the unitname is not specified,
tries to determine it from the input filename.
- -U [unitname]
The same as the
option, only bin2obj will also call the compiler and compile the unit.
Compress the data before creating the unit. zlib compression is used.
