If you have read the http://reboot.pro/2959/ CHS-LBA topic, you' ll understand there was an OT.
While I agree it was seen as troll, I didn't, at the time, know any other related topic.
This part of the forum, Appscripts, seems to have been at the beginning related to Winbuilder,
as I myself thought, as scripts usually have seemed to be. But in fact
. (Readme first, by Staff)
they don't need to be exclusively related to WinBuilder
Also I thought the batch would be straightforward, but then the trolling was long.
I had posted in that particular topic, the CHS-LBA translations one, as there were in the topic some
spreadsheets containing hexcode. Though my goal was not toward CHS-LBA,
there was talk of the issue of entering hex in a spreadsheet.
Also in the Fat_make xls (Wonko),
To import bootsector data:
1) Open a bootsector or floppy or volume image with Tiny Hexer
2) Select the whole sector
3) Run Tools->Scripts->Copy selection to clipboard as formatted hex data
4) Run Edit_>Paste to new
5) Paste "Text"
7) Enter a single [SPACE] in the "Find" box and tick the "Find text" box
8) Click on Find and in the Replace box type 09
9) Click on Replace all
10) You will have 511 replacements done.
11) Select All
13) Select cell A1 in the Excel sheet
14) Paste special ->Text
Basically I agree there was a troll on my part, but it was toward the above.
Which was what I was trying to do. My goal was just toward hex-editing in general, but the quoted thing was for me that apparently there was no easy way.
It also gave me hope, as the question had been raised. (hex is not a Very popular thing)
(so I thought I'd post there, to share)
The above quoted text is toward a Tiny Hexer script. I would've gone Tiny Hexer, but I'd started.
So I thought I 'd share, as it can be useful.
The batch will create an html table. The aim is for it to be usable in Excel or other similar program.
At the moment it does create a working table. The posts by Wonko were also helpful in cleaning the batch, and making it simpler.
Find the info at http://reboot.pro/2959/page__st__25 (and Wonko's code)
Hope it helps.
