linux default iconbenc Publisher's description

bencoded files handler

benc is an utility for working with bencoded files. It translates a given file between bencoded and text modes. The text file it produces is far more human-alterable than the bencoded version.


Any occurence of apostrophe (') and backslash () in string from bencoded file
is preceded by backslash () in text file. String from text file starts with
apostrophe (') and ends with apostrophe (').
In text file every opening apostrophe must have closing apostrophe.

'abc''def' - incorrect, lack of preceding backslashes
'ef'gh' - correct, length = 6
'efa' - incorrect, backslash precedes incorrect character


Run benc.

What's New in This Release:

В· Fixed handling of apostrophes in conversion between modes - text files generated by previous version are unsupported now
В· Reformatted code
В· Changed ChangeLog to Debian-like format

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
