How to force QuickBMS to name extracted files in decimal notation as opposed to the default hex, both in GUI and CLI?

Eh unfortunately that's not possible because the hexadecimal method used for the filenames is hardcoded.
Anyway the good news is that you can easily modify a script to create a decimal filename, for example:
Code:
string NAME p "%d." i
log NAME OFFSET SIZE
where 'i' is the usual variable used for enumerating the files.
Do you need the decimal notation for a specific reason?

It's for file organization reasons, like grouping files based on purpose, or order in which they are placed in an archived file. Windows and other software aren't friendly with file sorting with hexadecimal numbers as filenames, so that's why I ask here.

And also, thanks for that.

In the next version of quickbms I will add an option for using the decimal instead of the hexadecimal notation.
The reason why hex was chosen in place of decimal is that, as far as I remember, the sorting mechanism of Windows gave problems with the decimal notation, probably in old versions or when its numeric-sorting guess fails.
