BinText v3.00

billon on 3 Apr 2019
  • 37KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Dec 2000
  • Suggested by __philippe

BinText is a file text scanner / extractor that helps find character strings buried in binary files. The program can extract text from any kind of file and display plain ASCII text, Unicode (double byte ANSI) text, as well as Resource strings. Additional useful information for each item is included in the "Advanced" mode. Uniquely, the program will show both the file offset and the memory offset of each string found.

Although primarily targeted for programmers, it can be used by anyone interested in ferreting out character strings buried within binary files.

Note: Although updated versions of the program exist, the 3.00 version is listed for reasons described in forums.

Here is an old (2006) but interesting narrative about using Bintext for viewing Unicode strings in executables.

BinText at your finger_tip: (WinXP tested)

Place a shortcut to Bintext in your Windows SendTo folder so that you can quickly send files to BinText by right-clicking on their names and choosing Send To -> BinText from the drop-down menu.

You can set this up by right-clicking on bintext.exe, selecting Copy then open up your WindowsSendTo folder, right click the mouse and select Paste Shortcut

As an added bonus, files get automatically loaded in BinText "Advanced view" mode, no need even for clicking the GO button...;-)

Although it looks somewhat dated it works well. Unlike many tools of this type, file paths can be passed through the command line and through other apps. I have this setup as a tool in FreeCommander to empty directories quickly and easily. Be careful with the computer icon. It's meant for deleting an edited folder list. If it's clicked after scanning, even with the test only boxed checked, it will immediately delete every folder listed!

I actually have got an incredible amount of use out of this program. One would think you would run it once and never need it again, but when you are trying to organize huge amounts of data this utility becomes very useful.

The first thing that comes to my mind is that one of its main (and malicious) uses will be to upload and distribute fake files (for instance on binary newsgroups, file hosting sites, or via P2P), so users get tricked into downloading huge amounts of useless data while they keep thinking they are downloading some movie or software.

Apart from this malicious use, the program might perhaps be useful for tests, like testing the throughput and speed of a specific amount of data on a connection (e.g of an external hard-drive or a network connection, etc.).

This works well for creating a pad file to be used with dsmask (part of dsfok). dsfok is available from http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware
These 2 programs allow for truly unbreakable encryption.

I use this kind of file generators to block unneeded disk space (120 GB at my internet laptop). I leave only 3-4 GB available. this way when I shred the unused disk space once in a while (for making unwanted undeletes of sensible data impossible) the process is much faster.

Every time I open a folder with Folders Popup then the explorer bar open too. Could you delete that function please? I mean the explorer bar on the left of the screen in a folder, I do not use it since the beginning op windows xp, it takes space.

Folders Popup doesn't work in some of the windows fileboxes in xp. Please test all possible fileboxes and you will notice that some don't work.
That is also the case with other alike programs.
Is it even possible to make all fileboxes work.

Infobot on 2018-01-16 01:58

I use windows xp sp 3 and I use the classic view and classic windows mapping in the folder options.

When I open things in a folder on the desktop using Folders Popup then the navigation pane opens too.
Could you delete that function please? I mean the navigation pane on the left of the screen, I don't use it since the beginning of windows xp, because it takes space. It only happens when opening clicking on an empty space on the desktop.

In case (like me) you're left wondering what is this good for, here's a quote from the Wikipedia relevant article:

"ESE is notably a core of Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory. Its purpose is to allow applications to store and retrieve data via indexed and sequential access. Windows Mail and Desktop Search in the Windows Vista operating system also make use of ESE to store indexes and property information respectively."

You can have a somewhat complicated folder structure you built for a project and want to use it in a new one

Vixay on 2010-03-23 05:33

I was the one that gave the idea to SKWIRE for this program. What I needed it for was to replicate the file structure of the target system (production) on my developer machine so I could test out my scripts on file naming and manipulation. The advantage was I didn't have to copy the entire 50GB but only one zip file to recreate the structure :)

MCBastos on 2011-10-22 00:44

Another possible situation is when you are going to copy a LOT of files from one disk to another. By first creating the empty files, you end up with all the directories together and defragged, instead of fragmented all over the disk. Then, when you overwrite the empty files with the real files, the directories stay defragmented.
That's why Microsoft's Robocopy utility has the /CREATE switch, by the way. It does exactly what this utility does, and is already installed in every Windows since XP.
