Custom Character for Wipe Pattern

Certain wipe patterns within WipeDrive will prompt for the entry of a byte pattern that will be used in a pass within the overwriting algorithm. Those patterns are namely the U.S. Army AR380-19, and the U.S. Air Force System Security Instructions 5020 overwrite patterns. The prompt requires the entry of a decimal value, but when the wipe is performed, the hexadecimal and character values of the chosen number will be visible within the sector viewer. In order to help verify, below is a table that lists all the possible values that can be entered into this prompt, along with the value equivalents in their different forms. 

For example, if I wanted to use the character capital C to wipe my drive, I would look for the capital C in the character column and then look to the left to find the decimal number 67. I would then use the number 67 when WipeDrive prompts for a character. Later in the sector viewer, i could verify that the Hexadecimal value found in the sector corresponds to the value i had chosen.
