enber -- Convert the unber XML output back into BER

Synopsis

enber [-n] [-] [input-filenames...]

Description

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

Options

-n

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

Examples

Decode a BER sequence and immediately encode it back

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

Footnotes

This program does not attempt to perform full-fledged XML parsing. It is merely compatible with unber(1)'s output. In particular, the 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 enber(1) input 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">
