Bit Inspector is a graphical Qt front-end for libbitconvert. Bit Inspector converts 1s and 0s from magnetic stripes into more meaningful information, such as names and card numbers. Windows XP/Vista executables of Bit Inspector can be downloaded from http://ossguy.com/bitinspector/. To build and run Bit Inspector on Ubuntu 9.04, execute the following commands: $ sudo apt-get install build-essential libpcre3-dev libqt4-dev git-core $ git clone git://github.com/ossguy/libbitconvert.git $ git clone git://github.com/ossguy/bitinspector.git $ cd libbitconvert $ make $ cd ../bitinspector $ ./autogen.sh $ make $ ln -s ../libbitconvert/formats.txt formats.txt $ ./bitinspector Build instructions for other Unix-like operating systems should be similar. If you encounter any problems building libbitconvert or Bit Inspector, please let Denver Gingerich know at firstname.lastname@example.org. To use Bit Inspector, paste a series of ASCII 1s and 0s that you would like to convert into the text box then click "Inspect". Example data can be found in the libbitconvert/test_data folder. To use a file in that folder, copy its contents into the text box and click "Inspect". This will show you what is encoded in the 1s and 0s. Windows and Mac OS X build instructions will be added soon. -- Copyright (C) 2009 Denver Gingerich <email@example.com> Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification, are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright notice and this notice are preserved.
