BHX v5.6 - Encode a binary file in a batch script for rebuild it.

BHX v5.6
Encode a binary file in a batch script for rebuild it.

By default, the generated batch script name is mybin.cmd.
Is recommended convert your file in a cabinet
with compression, created with this command line:
Makecab /d compressiontype=lzx file file.cab
and use the generated cabinet as source.
This can save many bytes in the output script.

BHX source [/ne] [/o:out] [/y]

  source  Binary to encode.
  /ne     If the source file is a cabinet, not write code
          for expand it.
  /o:out  out is the output filename instead of mybin.cmd.
  /y      Overwrite the output file.
  /hex    Encode binary data using 16 hexadecimal characters.
          The default encoder uses 85 printable characters.

BHX /author
  display the author of the program.

Example of a generated script for rebuild self: build_bhx.cmd

Example of usage:

REM For save bytes is recommended create a cabinet file
REM using the compression LZX because it generally have
REM better compression than the default MSZIP

C:\folder> Makecab /D CompressionType=LZX file file.cab

REM Apply bhx

C:\folder> Bhx file.cab
"mybin.cmd" generated.

REM Check integrity:

C:\folder> Rename file file.bak

C:\folder> mybin.cmd

C:\folder> fc /b file file.bak
FC: no differences encountered
