Default Analysing Binary DATA ..

Several questions pertaining to this if any one can answer please.

How do you analyze Binary DATA in its raw form of 1's and 0's ..

Do you need to be able to actually be able to read the 1's and 0's and is this even possible to do that.

Thanks ..

Use a Hex editor to read/write binary data.

I mean, "raw" binary is just on/off electrical pulses on the hardware. Which then get read on the software side of things and are usually converted over into Hex values, as hex takes less storage.

I thought that was what Spud was asking for, putting binary into a readable text

Binary isn't always ASCII. ASCII is just a code set for text, numbers, and symbols/control characters.
