Extras like extra programs, files and other things that I've made.

AS-AESCTR 1.10

AS-AESCTR 1.10
Screenshot of AS-AESCTR 1.10

A command line program for encryption and decryption of files. The program uses a 256-bit AES (in CTR mode).

The program uses a (built-in) key strengthening algorithm, this increases the security.

The program stores an encrypted checksum of the original file, which is verified at decryption.

The program delivers an ErrorLevel code which indicates success (0) or failure (1).

The speed is measured and the program will display the results for you when it's done.

Use the parameter "-NoPercent" to display the number of Bytes that has been processed instead of percent.

Important information: Save the downloaded program if you have information encrypted with it. I do not guarantee compatibility between different versions/revisions of the program.

Speed Reference: Approximately 24 MB/sec. (Intel Core i3-2120)

A program for encryption and decryption of text. The program uses a 256-bit AES (in CTR mode). The program encodes the encrypted information.

The program uses a (built-in) key strengthening algorithm, this increases the security.

The program compresses the text (if possible) to increase the security.

The program stores an encrypted checksum of the (possibly) compressed original text, which is verified at decryption.

Press [F12] if you want to show or hide the password.

Important information: Save the downloaded program if you have information encrypted with it. I do not guarantee compatibility between different versions/revisions of the program.

AS-Downloader 1.0

AS-Downloader 1.0

A command line program to add/update all programs from Andreas Software into a proper (recommended) location. The recommended location to put all files from this website is in a folder named "Andreas Software" in the root of your system disk. The program takes care of most of the steps needed to add/update all programs (except for shutdown of running programs inside the folder) which includes create/wipe the folder, download the correct Zip file with all programs, uncompress them and create a shortcut to the folder on the desktop.

Instructions for AS-Downloader 1.0

Optional parameters:
"/AlsoWipeSettings" (Also wipe all INI/PREF/BIN files.)
"/NoShortcut" (Don't create a shortcut on the desktop.)
"/NoPause" (Don't ask for the [ENTER] key to exit.)
"/English" (Download the English Zip file.)
"/Swedish" (Download the Swedish Zip file.)

Notice: The only disadvantage of using this program is that the file date on the files will not be as in the Zip file (the revision date), it will be the date and the time when AS-Downloader wrote each file.

AS-Circle Image 1.0

No screenshot available.

Example
Example

This program loads a JPEG image and creates a circle image with an alpha channel and saves it as a 32-bit PNG image. The program does this with Anti-Alias to get smooth edges. Worth noting is that the program does not remove the other information in the image, if you would open the image in a program that does not use the alpha channel the whole image will show up without the circle.

AS-CC 2.10 (CC as in Color Correction)

AS-CC 2.10
Screenshot of AS-CC 2.10

A program which can change the gamma values for the components red, green and blue to get the environment you want. The program can also offset the color components to better control the grayscales. Windows has a built-in protection which makes that a program won't be able to make too big changes, I have included a REG file which lets you disable this protection (restart required).

Information: The program only creates and loads the gamma table, there is no functionality of making the changes persistent. If you want the changes to be persistent - create a shortcut to the program (with the parameters) in Startup and also make sure that no other programs modifies the gamma table. Also keep in mind that if you are using the computer's energy saving mode/lock mode the gamma table will be reset, you can use the "Task Scheduler" in Windows to automatically run a program after energy saving mode/lock mode.

Instructions for AS-CC 2.10

Parameters:
"/Monitor=1 to 999" (Selects monitor.)
"/AGamma=1 to 100" (Sets all components to this value.)
"/RGamma=1 to 100"
"/GGamma=1 to 100"
"/BGamma=1 to 100"
"/AOffset=+/-1 to 48" (Sets all components to this value.)
"/ROffset=+/-1 to 48"
"/GOffset=+/-1 to 48"
"/BOffset=+/-1 to 48"
"/Silent" (Silent mode, no message box.)

E.g. Run => "C:\Andreas Software\AS-CC.EXE" "/Monitor=1" "/RGamma=80" "/GGamma=70" "/BGamma=60" "/ROffset=+16" "/GOffset=+4" "/BOffset=-16" => OK.

(If you don't see any difference when using this program it means that your graphics card doesn't support this feature.)

AS-Melody and Freq Suite 1.0 (Sine, Square)

No screenshot available.

A suite containing two programs that can play a melody string and two programs that can play a specified frequency (in Hz) in a specified length (in milliseconds). The Sine-programs uses the sound card (in form of sine waves) and the Square-programs uses the sound card (in form of square waves). Can e.g. be used to announce something in a program, script or in a batch file. The programs shows nothing on the screen and when the sound has been played they are closing automatically.

You can specify the parameter "/KeepWAV" to keep the generated audio file "Audio.WAV" which is located in the same folder as the programs. (These programs needs write access rights to the folder where the EXE files are located.)

Specifications for generated audio files:

Samples per second: 44,100.
Bits per sample: 16.
Channels: 2 (Stereo).
Format: PCM (Pulse Code Modulation).

(These values are called CD quality.)

Instructions for the Melody-programs

You pass the melody string as a parameter to the programs. (Remember to fold it with a double quotation mark before and after the melody string.)
E.g. Run => "C:\Andreas Software\AS-SQUARE-MELODY.EXE" "a A f f F g a A g f E p g G e f g e a f D C" => OK. See Melodies.TXT.

Instructions for the Freq-programs

The parameter "/F=440" specifies the frequency of 440 Hz. The parameter "/D=1000" specifies the length of 1,000 milliseconds (1 second). These values are default if they are not specified.
E.g. Run => "C:\Andreas Software\AS-SQUARE-FREQ.EXE" "/F=440" "/D=1000" => OK.
