Rearray binary tool


This high performance tool rearrays its input adding a second dimension of size n bits/8 bits.

It is useful to test serial correlation by estimating the entropy of each output.

#rearray each 8/32 bits in 4 files
output[0][0] = input[0] >> rearray.0
output[1][0] = input[1] >> rearray.1
output[2][0] = input[2] >> rearray.2
output[3][0] = input[3] >> rearray.3
output[0][1] = input[4] >> rearray.0
output[1][1] = input[5] >> rearray.1
output[2][1] = input[6] >> rearray.2
output[3][1] = input[7] >> rearray.3


#rearray each 8/16 bits in 2 files
rearray-16 input

#rearray each 8/32 bits in 4 files
rearray-32 input

#rearray each 8/64 bits in 8 files
rearray-64 input

#rearray each 8/128 bits in 16 files
rearray-128 input

#rearray each 8/256 bits in 32 files
rearray-256 input

#rearray each 8/512 bits in 64 files
rearray-512 input

Recommended use
for b in {16,32,64,128,256,512}
 do rearray-$b input
 for f in rearray.*
  do entropy 1 $f
rm rearray.*

apt-get install rearray
#makefile as su
