Hackage Matrix CI
This little program helps with the following task:
You need to analyse some binary file (e.g., the firmware for some microcontroller). You want to understand how it does certain things, but the file is big. One approach to help you in the process is to erase parts of the file (by overwriting it with binary zeros) and see if the file still does what it should be doing. If it does, then you know that the interesting parts are in another part of the file.
binary-binary assists in this process by doing the book-keeping and zeroing
out parts of the file.
