=============================================================================== EKSD - let's go ahead and XXD again =============================================================================== xxd is a very good hexdump program that makes editing files on UNIX very easy. It also doesn't support text-tables. Which sucks. eksd is a clone of a good hexdump program (even matching several arguments exactly)… except it supports text-tables. ———————————————————————————————————————— USAGE ———————————————————————————————————————— To see a hexdump of a file, just run: $ eksd $FILE > $HEXDUMP If you want to turn a hexdump (from eksd or xxd) back to a file: $ eksd -r $HEXDUMP > $FILE And to make a hexdump with a custom text-table: $ eksd -t $TABLEFILE $FILE > $HEXDUMP Text-tables are in a simple format— one hexcode per line, followed by it's character. See text-tables/* for examples. By default, eksd uses a built-in *fancy* text-table— it's basic ASCII, except it'll print nice pictographics for newline characters, etc. These require UTF, of course. If they don't work for you, use the "-a" arg to revert to simple, non-fancy ASCII. Note that specifying a text-table will override "-a", though. ———————————————————— EXAMPLES ———————————————————— Here's a part of Castlevania (EU) for the NES using it's text-table: $ eksd -t castle-table.txt castlevania.nes | grep -A4 "18e80" 00018e80: 5454 5454 866e 6854 6460 8486 5454 5454 ....THE.CAST.... 00018e90: 5454 5454 5466 8260 6488 7660 5454 5454 .....DRACULA.... 00018ea0: 5464 6e82 7084 867c 7e6e 6882 5462 6868 .CHRISTOPHER.BEE 00018eb0: 5454 5454 5454 6668 6086 6e54 5454 5454 ......DEATH..... 00018ec0: 5454 5462 6876 7c54 7688 6c7c 8470 5454 ...BELO.LUGOSI.. And here's that same file in xxd (just because I feel like showing off): $ xxd castlevania.nes | grep -A4 "18e80" 00018e80: 5454 5454 866e 6854 6460 8486 5454 5454 TTTT.nhTd`..TTTT 00018e90: 5454 5454 5466 8260 6488 7660 5454 5454 TTTTTf.`d.v`TTTT 00018ea0: 5464 6e82 7084 867c 7e6e 6882 5462 6868 Tdn.p..|~nh.Tbhh 00018eb0: 5454 5454 5454 6668 6086 6e54 5454 5454 TTTTTTfh`.nTTTTT 00018ec0: 5454 5462 6876 7c54 7688 6c7c 8470 5454 TTTbhv|Tv.l|.pTT ———————————————————————————————————————— INSTALLATION ———————————————————————————————————————— Prebuilt binaries can be found at https://mirror.eunichx.us/eksd/ for both Linux and OpenBSD. … but if they don't work for you, you can make your own binary. That requires a Lisp (I recommend SBCL) and Quicklisp (https://quicklisp.org). Put this into "quicklisp/local-projects/", then run, in your lisp interpreter: # (ql:quickload '(eksd eksd-unix)) # (save-lisp-and-die "eksd" :toplevel #'eksd-unix:invoke :executable t) And bam, you've made a binary. Cool. ———————————————————————————————————————— BORING STUFF ———————————————————————————————————————— License is the GNU GPLv3: check COPYING.txt (/ipfs/QmTBpqbvJLZaq3hTMUhxX5hyJaSCeWe6Q5FRctQbsD6EsE) Author is Jaidyn Ann <jadedctrl@teknik.io> Sauce is at https://git.eunichx.us/eksd.git
