Scripts for Icons


Here are two perl scripts to help you create icons.

Make Icon

makeIcon.pl is a script that takes icons represented by binary values like these examples, icon0, icon1, icon2, and icon3, and converts them to the hex representation with reversed ordering so that you can directly put it in the icon rom.

Example: makeIcon icon0 > icon0.hex
resulting icon0.hex

Read Icon

readIcon.pl is a script that does the opposite of makeIcon.It takes an icon in hex and outputs the icon in binary form. The input file should contain one icon per line.

Example: readIcon icons.hex > icons
resulting icons, and icons.hex used.
