Binary File Encoder

Postby Mathimagics » Fri Jan 11, 2019 8:17 am

This is a pair of matching tools for Win64 users that facilitates email of EXE file attachments (and will work for any other binary file type).

The "encode" tool converts a binary file to all text, and the "decode" tool does the reverse. Thus we can avoid the ever-alert email-security checkers.

And we also help to keep the forum attachment count under control by not posting unnecessary binary attachments (after all, as somebody ;) once said "this is not a file sharing service")

Decoded files, particularly EXE's, should of course always be scanned before running them, just to be absolutely sure they haven't been corrupted by some evil troll!

These should work on any Win64 platform. If you want to use it on other platforms, I can also provide Win32 versions, and for Unix people I can give you the source code for the tools (you'll just need a C compiler to compile them).

    encode file1 file2
    decode file1 file2

where file1 is the file to be converted, file2 is the output.
