drm-tools 1.1.33 Utilities to manipulate text and binary files
The drm_tools package contains the following commands:
An extended version of the "date" program that has sub-second accuracy.
Format complex binary data into text.
Load data into a binary file using simple commands from the input.
Sort, merge, search, retrieve or generate test data consisting of fixed size binary records.
Find or find/replace in binary files.
Split test data consisting of fixed size binary records into one or more output streams.
Find changes between two files at the character level. Unlike "diff", it lists just the characters that differ, so if the 40,000th character is different only that one character will be shown, not the entire line.
Add columns of integers, decimals, and/or times.
A utility for formatting binary data dumps.
Double precision interactive command line math calculator.
Extract and emit data from text files based on character or token position.
A utility that reads from STDIN and executes each line as a command in a sub-process.
A utility for rapid retrieval of text by line numbers, in any order, from a text file.
Format binary data.
Create message queues and send/receive messages.
Multiple buffer in and out. Used for buffering a lot of data between a slow device and a fast device. Mostly for buffering streaming tape drives for use with slower network connections, so that streaming is maintained as much as possible to minimize wear on the tape device.
Corrupt data streams - useful for testing error correction and data recovery.
Filter, list, or split a tar file.
