uHex is a simple and fast hex editor for DOS. It has been written with care to work fast even on an 8086 CPU, providing support for large files (up to 2 GiB) while using minimal amounts of memory. "uHex" stands for "micro Hex" (it should actually be spelled µHex, but DOS operating systems do not allow non-ASCII symbols in filenames, thus the official name became just "uHex").

uHex supports several video text modes (80x25, 80x43, 80x50.. and any other, as long as it has at least 80 columns), both in color and black & white modes.

Hardware requirements

uHex has very low requirements. It runs on anything that provides:
- an 8086/8088 compatible CPU,
- a MS-DOS 2.0 compatible operating system,
- ca. 20K of free conventional memory,
- an 80 columns video mode.
