Procbyte is a tool to access binary files from shell programming. It has binary data handling, read/write capability, basic math and date conversions. It is intended to aid in bash programming, but can be used from any command line tool or application.
NOTE: This was accidentally uploaded as a beta, instead of alpha, but its status IS ALPHA. The next upload will standardize the language to the point where any scripts that work in it will work in all future versions -- however, scripts written for this version may not work in subsequent ones, the (mostly output) commands have changed:
, ; . =*
Sorry for that, but I had to rework a bit to get more possible tokens and increase future expandability. If there's demand, I'll include a converter for old scripts, either as a filter or command-line interpreter so you'll be able to pipe through an additional step or use `convert_old_procb "MY-OLD-SCRIPT"` or something like that.
