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 index
in the file. (index
is the index in the array).
accepts a filename of a binary file, and needs the name of a
constant (use the -c
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 include file.
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 constants.
- -e key
- If this option is given, the data will be encrypted with
key 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, bin2obj will write the output to
a file with name filename instead. This option is mandatory if the
-U option is specified.
- -u [unitname]
- This option tells bin2obj to generate a unit. By
default the output is just the declaration of the constant. If the
unitname is not specified, bin2obj tries to determine it from the
- -U [unitname]
- The same as the -u option, only bin2obj will also
call the compiler and compile the unit.
- Compress the data before creating the unit. zlib
compression is used.
