    Hi guys,

    I found this info on yahoo answer : http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110317193747AADbRAJ simply says:

    "If you want to make an EXE file into a PDF document, use a Hex Viewer and take the hex dump into a text file and convert it into PDF using some software like Open Office"

    but then I have no idea, what is hex dump, how I can take it to text file (notepad?). any help would be appreciated.
    The .exe file (flash ebook, .swf) was created from pdf files.
    Thanks

    Who's machine are you trying to 'infect' that you need to encapsulate your .exe as an innocent looking .pdf ?

    There is no doubt pdfs have security issues with them but I see no reason why you would convert an executable to a pdf. Perhaps I am missing something but hacking using a pdf is very high on the lame schedule lol.

    thanks for the replies but why you thought that I would infect a file. I attribute this inherence of the forum. lol:)

    Even I do not know what hex dump but in between search a bit more and found HxD, but still not sure which part is hexdump, there are 16 binary row, something like this and unreadable text. stuck there.

    just I need to print out pdf files. If there is a way please share the knowledge, and please do not make assumption.

    Open file with HxD, Hex is the part in the middle. Click the middle part, then Hit Ctrl + A followed Ctrl + C to copy to clipboard. (your first Hex Dump) Then open your txt file and paste that in. Simple.
