Transform Templates - Binary

This topic discusses application of the Transform panel with Tables on a binary field in a table.   See the Transform panel and Transform Templates topics for use and for links to lists of templates for other data types for tables and use of the Transform panel with other components, such as Drawings and Images.

Tables, Datetime Type

Compose WKB

Provides a way to extract geometry from a Manifold geometry type, a geom, into a well known binary representation of the geometry, WKB.  Given a geom field create a WKB binary value for that object.

 

Example: Take the Geom field and use Compose WKB to put into BinaryValue.

Copy

Copy the source field into the target field.

Maximum Value

Take the maximum, that is the greater value, of either the source field or the comparison field and save into the target field.

Minimum Value

Take the minimum, that is the lesser value, of either the source field or the comparison field and save into the target field.

Parse Base64 String

Takes a base64-encoded string that encodes a binary value, retrieves the binary value and saves it into the target binary field.

Parse Hex String

Takes a hexadecimal-encoded string that encodes a binary value, retrieves the binary value and saves it into the target binary field.

Text Compare Key, Intl

Given a string generates a binary representation of the text, capturing the specified international options including the specified language.  The binary representations of the text can then be compared to each other to determine if a string is less than or greater than (meaning, comes before or comes after in dictionary order) another string.

 

Notes

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: Those who understand binary, those who don’t.
