Can someone point me to a sample so I can get started? This will be
my first Haskkel project, after reading about it for some months now.
I need to extract text from a structed binary file. Its a local
database for a commercial app of proprietary structure, though the
structure has been determined. So I need to move along a number of
bytes, take a few chunks of so many more bytes and grab the string and
move on to the next record, dumping the contents - ultimately dumping
it to XML. It'll need to run on windows so I guess I had better use
So a sample and any advice would be an excellent start for me, and
would be greatly appreciated.
