       bin2obj - The Free Pascal binary to pascal include file converter.


       bin2obj [-aeouUz] -c constname infile


       bin2obj  reads a binary file and converts it to a pascal typed constant
       declaration.  The constant is an array of bytes (zero based), in  which
       each  byte  has  the value of the byte at the offset index in the file.
       (index is the index in the array).


       bin2obj accepts a filename of a binary file, and needs the  name  of  a
       constant  (use  the  -c  option). The output goes to standard output by
       default. If no unitname is given, the output will be  in  the  form  of
       code which can be written to an include file.


       bin2obj has a small number of options to control its behaviour:

       -a     Write ASCII data instead of bytes. The constant array will be an
              array of char instead of an array of bytes. The  bytes  will  be
              written as ASCII constants.

       -e key If  this  option  is  given, the data will be encrypted with key
              which is a string of 8 characters long.

       -h     emit a small helptext.

       -o filename
              By default, the output goes to standard output (the screen).  If
              this  option  is  given, bin2obj will write the output to a file
              with name filename instead. This option is mandatory if  the  -U
              option is specified.

       -u [unitname]
              This  option  tells  bin2obj  to generate a unit. By default the
              output is just the declaration of the constant. If the  unitname
              is  not  specified, bin2obj tries to determine it from the input

       -U [unitname]
              The same as the -u option,  only  bin2obj  will  also  call  the
              compiler and compile the unit.

       -z     Compress  the data before creating the unit. zlib compression is
