# Binary to text

### By log2 on Mar 13, 2005

This is what I've been slaving over for the past 5 hours.. A person enters a binary value and this little beuty converts the binary entered into a character! pretty easy to use, type !b-t to use it. but the downside of it is that right now it only converts one letter at a time :(

``````; Type !b-t then a binary number to try this script out!

; errors syntax, these show!
if (\$2 == \$null) {
msg \$chan Enter some binary!
}
if (\$len(\$2) != 8) {
msg \$chan Have you ever seen Binary to Text conversion? you need 8 numbers between 0-1!
halt
}
if (\$regex(\$2,/[a-zA-Z_]/) >= 1) {
msg \$chan Binary doesn't have letters!
halt
}
if (\$regex(\$2,/[2-9]/) >= 1) {
msg \$chan You fool! Binary ONLY contains 1's and 0's
halt
}
else {
set %bin.text \$2
set %bin.inc 1

set %bin. \$+ %bin.inc \$mid(\$2,%bin.inc,1)

You can use \$base to convert from binary to decimal. Example: \$base(101,2,10) = 5 (the 101 is the binary number, 2 is the in \'base\', 10 is the out \'base\'. 2 = binary, 10 = decimal, 16 = hexidecimal)
