The left text box is the image you're editing, us the left mouse button to paint with the active color (selected colorbox on the toolbar to the right) or the right button to place a selected character (from the character boxes below that.) Click on the toolbox icon or color to change the selection, right-click on the colors to define your own.

The ".BIN" file consists of all the characters in a binary file, in the manner shown below:

 
		    writer.Write(x); //x dim (int)
                    writer.Write(y); //y dim (int)

                    for (tx = 0; tx < x; tx++)  //x characters wide
                    {
                        for (ty = 0; ty < y; ty++) //y characters tall
                        {
                            writer.Write(charmatrix[tx, ty]); //character (int)
                            writer.Write(r); //r (double)
                            writer.Write(g); //g (double)
                            writer.Write(b); //b (double)
                        } //for ty
                    } //for tx

Where the double values are all color indexes between 1 (saturated) and 0 (absent.) For the purposes of this program, they're all one, which represents each character foreground color being bright white. Although this format
