# Create a list of binary numbers

echo {0..1}{0..1}{0..1}{0..1}
If you should happen to find yourself needing some binary numbers, this is a quickie way of doing it. If you need more digits, just add more "{0..1}" sequences for each digit you need. You can assign them to an array, too, and access them by their decimal equivalent for a quickie binary to decimal conversion (for larger values it's probably better to use another method). Note: this works in bash, ksh and zsh. For zsh, though, you'll need to issue a setopt KSH_ARRAYS to make the array zero-based. `binary=({0..1}{0..1}{0..1}{0..1})` `echo \${binary[9]}`
Sample Output
`0000 0001 0010 0011 0100 0101 0110 0111 1000 1001 1010 1011 1100 1101 1110 1111`

• Convert some decimal numbers to binary numbers. You could also build a general base-converter: `function convBase { echo "ibase=\$1; obase=\$2; \$3" | bc; }` then you could write `function decToBun { convBase 10 2 \$1; }` Show Sample Output

function decToBin { echo "ibase=10; obase=2; \$1" | bc; }

Although I can't think of a situation where this command would have helped me, it still gets a thumbs up for being cool :-) . Nice one.

Really surprised to see this command. I don't know of its use, but it rocks!
Bluehive · 718 weeks and 2 days ago
Wonderful -- I didn't know I could do things like {1..10}. That'll simplify some of my scripts.
tremby · 718 weeks and 1 day ago
@tremby: Yes, "for i in {1..10}; do", for example, comes in really handy. You can also do letters: "{m..p}" gives "m n o p".
