cn(1)                     BSD General Commands Manual                    cn(1)


NAME

     cn, -- Command line interface to CommonNumerics routines.


SYNOPSIS

     cn, [-p prompt] [command] [command_options] [command_args]


DESCRIPTION

     A simple command line utility allowing you to perform CRC and Base
     Encode/Decode with the Common Numerics functions.

     cn, has the following standard options for all sub-commands:

     -h            Show help information.

     -a            Use the specified algorithm.  The CRC, Encode, and Decode
                   commands have various algorithms that can be used on data
                   provided to them.

     -s -<string>  Performs the operation on the specified string value.

     -v            Function in Verbose mode.


CN COMMAND SUMMARY

     cn, currently only provides functions for two activities: CRC calculation
     and Base Encoding and Decoding (base16, base32, base64).

     Here are brief descriptions of all the cn, commands:

     crc            Perform a CRC on the data provided either as a string or
                    on stdin.

     Encode|Decode  Encode or Decode data provided either as a string or on
                    stdin using one of the algorithms specified below.

ENVIRONMENT

     CN_READ_SIZE  The "read size" to use when processing incoming data.

     CN_WIDTH      The number of columns in which to output data when perform-
                   ing a base encoding.  The default is 64 columns.
