       data2inc - Free Pascal binary to pascal include file converter.


       data2inc [-ABSVH] msgfile [incfile] [constname]


       data2inc  reads a binary or text file and converts it to a pascal typed
       constant declaration.  The constant is an  array  of  characters  (zero
       based),  in which each character’s ascii value is the value of the byte
       at the offset index in the binary file. (index  is  the  index  in  the
       array). If the input file is a text file, options will be read from the
       file and an output file will be  generated  according  to  the  options


       data2inc  with  the  -B option accepts a filename of a binary file, and
       needs the name of an include file and  constant  name.  The  output  is
       written  to incfile The name of the constant constname is mandatory for
       a binary file.

       data2inc without -B option takes the name of a message description file
       as  input.  It  will  process  the message file and write the output as
       described in the message file to incfile


       data2inc has a small number of options to control its behaviour:

       -A     Write bytes instead of characters. The constant array will be an
              array of byte instead of an array of char.

       -B     If this option is given, the msgfile will be treated as a binary

       -H     emit a small helptext.

       -S     data2inc will write the output as an array of strings,  or  a  2
              dimensional array of characters.

       -V     Show the version number and exit.
