The CHTDecoder program is a simple application designed to decipher those SNES emulator .CHT files (used in ZSNES and Snes9x) into plain text. You can load a .CHT file and it will decode the cheats inside it to plain text. These codes are also Pro Action Replay codes.
You can save the results to a file by using the save button.
From the original Java version, we have spawned versions in other languages.
A PHP version for people who cannot run the Java applet (or don't want to).
A Perl version for people who want a small console script.
A C++ version similar to the Java version (but with features similar to the Perl version and output similar to the PHP version).
The Java, C++, and Perl versions have a text mode that can be used if you download the program. The PHP version can only be used online. The Java and C++ versions have graphical modes (aka GUIs) which support drag and drop. The Java and C++ versions are the most refined and full-featured.
Why so many languages? Well, the Java version was created because I know Java very well. The PHP and perl versions were because people suggested them on the ZSNES message board, but they did not create them as I would have, so I wrote my own. The C++ version was because I always wanted to create a graphical C (or C++ in this case) program and it was a good learning project for wxWidgets.
Too many choices? Don't know which version is for you? Get wxCHTDecoder. It is the most complete and full-featured and shouldn't require any extra things to be installed (like a Java Virtual Machine).
