eXamine 1.0 beta

Data conversion/examination command line tool.

Installation

eXamine is written in pure C, so you cam compile it wherever you want. Just do:

git clone https://github.com/merces/examine.git
make
make install
examine

A symbolic link "x" is also created for your convenience. :neckbeard:

Available input prefixes (for numbers only): 0b (binary), 0x (hexadecimal) and 0 (octal).

Usage examples

Analyse the hexadecimal number 0xB0B0CA:

echo 0xb0b0ca | x

eXamine does not really know whether the input is intended to be either a string or a number. It just processes it as both and output some handy conversions. The next example shows eXamine in interactive mode:
