enber — Convert the unber XML output back into BER


enber [-n] [-] [infile...]


enber convers the XML-formatted files produced by unber(1) back into the BER format. A single dash denotes the standard input.


Disable input validation. By default, enber performs some basic validity checks against XML input.


Decode a BER sequence and immediately encode it back

unber -p filename.ber | enber - > reconstructed.ber


This program does not attempt to perform full-fledged XML parsing. It is merely compatible with unber(1)'s output. In particular, XML style comments are not supported. A hash "#" or two dashes "--" following a whitespace is treated as a beginning of a comment line, which is ignored completely. Empty lines are ignored as well.

The following example demostrates the use of comments:

<C O="0" T="[1]" TL="2" V="2">
	<I O="2" T="[1]" TL="2" V="Indefinite">
	-- </I O="4" T="[UNIVERSAL 0]" L="4">
	# Do not terminate:
	# the absence of end-of-content octets is intentional!
</C O="6" T="[1]" L="6">
