NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     file2c - convert file to c-source

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     file2c [string] [string]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The file2c utility reads a file from the standard input  and
writes it to
     the  standard  output,  converting  each byte to its decimal
     on the fly.

     If the first string is present, it is printed before the data.  If the
     second string is present, it is printed after the data.

     This  program  is used to embed binary or other files into C
source files,
     for instance as a char[].

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The command:

           $ date | file2c 'const char date[] = {' ',0};'

     will produce:

           const char date[] = {
