NAME

ftimes-encoder - Encode/Decode strings/records using various algorithms


SYNOPSIS

ftimes-encoder [-o option[,option[,...]]] [-t type] -m mode -f {file|-}


DESCRIPTION

This utility reads lines from a file or stdin and encodes or decodes them according to user-specified criteria.


OPTIONS

-f {file|-}

Specifies the name of the input file. A value of '-' will cause the program to read from stdin.

-m mode

Specifies the mode of operation. The mode can be one of {e|enc|encode}, {d|dec|decode}, or {c|convert}.

-o option,[option[,...]]

Specifies the list of options to apply. Currently, the following options are supported:

NoNewline

Don't add a newline character to the end of the output. This option is primarily intended for single line decodes where the output is expected to be binary and subsequently redirected to a file or piped to another utility. In both of these cases, the extra newline would be unwanted since it will pollute the output stream.

OneString

Treat the entire input stream as a single string. This option is primarily intended for small- to medium-sized input streams that can easily be stored in memeory.

-t type

Specifies the type of encoding or decoding to apply. The type can be one of base64, ftimes-nss, ftimes-sss, ftimes-url, hex, or url. NSS is short for Neuter Safe String, and SSS is short for Shell Safe String.
