cbor-diag-cli

A diagnostic tool for working with Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR). This tool can parse binary, hex, and diagnostic notation representations of CBOR items; then output them as binary, hex (with or without annotations), and diagnostic notation (compact or "pretty").

Installation

Currently cbor-diag-cli is only distributed through crates.io, install Rust then install with:

> cargo install cbor-diag-cli
Updating crates.io index
[...]

> cbor-diag --help
cbor-diag 0.1.0
A utility for converting between binary, diagnostic, hex and annotated hex formats for CBOR.
