Convert Your Text Into Machine Code
By on August 21st, 2009

We have all seen image, video and document converters, but how about going behind the scenes and see how things work inside our machines. Here’s a converter that allows you to convert your text into machine code which is the binary number system.

The binary numeral system, or base-2 number system represents numeric values using two symbols, usually 0 and 1. When talking in terms of computers or circuits these can either represent a circuit that is off (0) or a circuit that is on (1).

If you want to see how your text you type is converted into a series of 0′s and 1′s, this is a great tool to find that out. Simple type in any text and click encode. The piece of text will then be converted into 0′s and 1′s. On the other hand, if you are ever trying to make sense of a binary code, you can just enter it in this tool under Binary and click on decode to convert it into text.

The tool also offers text to hex and text to octal conversions.
