Custom Component Example

Suppose you need to parse a proprietary binary data format. Rather than parse the binary data directly, you prefer to convert the data to a text representation that is easier to parse.
To do this, you can program a custom document processor, which you might call MyBinaryToText. The processor might have properties such as the following:
A Boolean property. When true, the processor preserves the line-break characters in the binary data.
An integer property. Specifies the maximum length of the text lines to output.
A string property. Tells the processor to ignore data fields beginning with the specified string.
After you develop the processor, you can install it and use it in Scripts.
