Converts an .EXE file to a .BIN file, which may be used as a

.COM file by renaming it with the .COM extension if it is in .COM

file format, or by giving a .COM extension to the second



PC-DOS 2.0+ (revised from 1.1; none in 1.0)

MS-DOS equivalent: EXE2BIN (2.0+)




[d:][path] EXE2BIN [sd:][spath]sfilename



[d:][path] Specifies the drive letter and

path that contain the EXE2BIN

command file.

[sd:][spath]sfilename Specifies the file name of the

.EXE file to be converted.

[td:][tpath]tfilename Specifies the file name of the

.BIN file to be created.

EXE2BIN is used to convert an .EXE (executable) file to a

.BIN (binary) file, which is formatted for more efficient storage

and operation.






Amount read less than size in header

The program portion of the .EXE file was less than the program

header indicates. Recompile or reassemble the program again; then

relink it before continuing.

Fixups needed- -base segment (hex)

The source file indicates that a load segment is required.

Specify the absolute address at which the completed .COM file is

to be loaded.

WARNING- -Read error on EXE file

An error in reading the input file occurred. EXE2BIN will

continue; however, the resulting file may not be executable.


Only executable code that is completely relocatable in

memory and run at a specific memory location can be converted by

this command. In addition, the memory image of the .EXE file must

be less than 64K. If you do not specify an output file name, the

input file name will be used.
