Convert between ASCII, hexadecimal and binary representations

This package contains:

 * ascii2binary reads input consisting of ascii or hexadecimal representation
   numbers separated by whitespace and produces as output the binary
   equivalents. The type and precision of the binary output is selected
   using command line flags.
 * binary2ascii reads input consisting of binary numbers and converts
   them to their ascii or hexadecimal representation.
   Command line flags specify the type and size of the binary numbers
   and provide control over the format of the output.
   Unsigned integers may be written out in binary, octal, decimal,
   or hexadecimal.
   Signed integers may be written out only in binary or decimal. Floating
   point numbers may be written out only decimal, either in standard or
   scientific notation. (If you want to examine the binary representation
   of floating point numbers, just treat the input as a sequence of unsigned

The two programs are useful for generating test data, for inspecting binary files, and for interfacing programs that generate textual output to programs that require binary input and conversely. They can also be useful when it is desired to reformat numbers.
