NAME
       bo - Used to create or retrieve binary opaque objects.

SYNOPSIS
       bo {[-i u] | [-o]} {type	dest source} {type dest	source}

DESCRIPTION
       Used to create or retrieve binary opaque	objects. Currently, only
       uniform binary objects (arrays of values) are supported.	One of -i or
       -o must be specified. The -i is for "input," or creating	a binary
       object, and the -o option is used for "output," or retrieving a binary
       object. The u type argument must	be supplied when -i is used, to
       indicate	the type of uniform binary object to be	created. On input, the
       dest is the name	of the object to be created, and the source is the
       path to a file containing the values in the local host format. On
       output, dest is the path	to a file to receive the contents of the
       binary object whose name	appears	in source. The type may	be one of:
	   f ->	float
	   d ->	double
	   c ->	char (8	bit)
	   s ->	short (16 bit)
	   i ->	int (32	bit)
	   l ->	long (64 bit)
	   C ->	unsigned char (8 bit)
	   S ->	unsigned short (16 bit)
	   I ->	unsigned int (32 bit)
	   L ->	unsigned long (64 bit)

       Note: this command was previously named "dbbinary".

EXAMPLES
       The examples show the use of the	bo command to both create (-i option)
       and to retrieve a binary	object (-o option).

       Example 1. Create an opaque uniform binary object of characters with a
       specified name containing the contents of a particular file.

       mged> bo	-i u c cmds /usr/brlcad/html/manuals/mged/mged_cmds.html

       Creates an opaque uniform binary	object of characters with the name
       cmds that contains the contents of the file
       /usr/brlcad/html/manuals/mged/mged_cmds.html.

       Example 2. Copy the contents of a particular binary object into a
       specified file.

       mged>bo -o /home/jim/cmds.html cmds

       Copies the contents of the binary object	named cmds into	the file named
       /home/jim/cmds.html.
