Decoding table tool in KDevelop

Fri Jan 20, 2012 4:50 pm
How is the decoding table tool supposed to work in KDevelop? I cannot seem to make it do anything at all. It looks like it could be really useful in low-level programming.

You might want to try asking about this on the KDevelop development list - https://barney.cs.uni-potsdam.de/mailma ... o/kdevelop

Already tried it but got the answer that it is part Okteta.

I also got the following link:

http://utils.kde.org/projects/okteta/

Couldn't find any Okteta specific mailing list or forum though...

I would recommend looking for material linked to kdesdk - as that is the module which contains Okteta.

Ah, I kind of assumed that this was the forum for kdesdk. Will have to search some more then.

My searches have indicated that neither Okteta or kdesdk have specific mailing lists. You might want to ask on [email protected].

For anyone still wondering how to work with decoding table.

This specific toolbar is tightly integrated in okteta (KDE HEXeditor), therefore to use it you need to activate the hex editor plugin in KDevelop(funny thing is that the decoding table is not part of said plugin and can be docked even when it is disabled). Once you activated the plugin, you need to open the file in said hex editor, to do so right click on the file in any toolbar that let`s you view files will open context menu where you can choose the "Open With" option where you should see "Hex Editor" in "Embedded editor" category, choose that)
When you`ve successfully opened file with integrated Hex Editor(which is Okteta in disguise) you should see that whatever you select now shows there in different variations, be careful though since it interprets everything as raw data, therefore it will convert the code that corresponds with said char, but not the number that it represents. For example "1" in ASCII will be represented as 31(HEX) therefore he will provide the 49 for the Dec and 61 for Oct.

I`m actually surprised how intuitive it is, and how there is literally no info on this, and even KDevelop docs through an empty page at you, though they have it listed in tools list https://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop5/Manual/Tool_list
