Release 2.1 supports micros from TI

Micros from Texas Instruments (e.g.TMS320F2835, TMS320F28065) are now supported since they use a different data representation from standard Intel Hex. In the record type, data is represented in Word (2 Byte). Thanks to Simone Fratini!

Release 2.1 is available!

Some rewriting, bug fix-up.

New options:
-a for word aligned hex file
-b for batch mode; doesn't ask for files if the file specified is wrong, just exits.

A small modification will be necessary for your batch/script files, since the previous batch mode didn't work the same on Linux and Windows.

In batch or script files, instead of writing:
hex2bin < nul my_file_name.hex
hex2bin -b my_file_name.hex

-Option k is a bit different: see doc/Readme file.
-Code has been a bit rewrited.
-CRC8, 16 and 32 available, configurable with parameters. See test/Makefile for examples.
-Option E (little/big endian) for check methods or forcing a value in a file.

Release 2.0 coming soon...

mot2bin has been updated also. The 2 programs compile fine and are currently under tests.

Working on next release (2.0)

Hex2bin is already modified. Mot2bin is not completed yet.
CRC is implemented in 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit, with user specified parameters.
Some example of common CRCs will be provided.
Options were modified a bit so I could understand and simplify the code. They will not be all compatible with the previous version.

On next release: possibility to add CRC inside binary file

Instead of a checksum, a wider variety of check methods will be available.

New release under way: submit your wish list!

I'm currently adding a submitted feature, and I plan to implement the overlapping records checking. I happen to have some CRC routines done, and it could probably be of use.

Hex2bin to be relicensed to BSD

Instead of using the LGPL license, Hex2bin will be released with a BSD license along with new feature(s). The release 1.0.9 should be posted soon.

Posted by Jacques Pelletier 2012-03-02

Added LGPL as license

Hex2bin code can be used for commercial applications. I added the LGPL license in this project; current release (1.0.8) can be used as LGPL even if files are specified with GPL. Licensing change will be included in next release.

This release fixes physical address calculation for extended linear address records, and a bug with the ADDRESS_MASK define.

Release 1.0.7

This fixes the crash on 0 byte length data records.

Posted by Jacques Pelletier 2009-12-12
