Binary (hexadecimal) editor for Windows
- Six color schemes to interpret bytes visually. Every of them tryies to fit some functionality (for example text analyzing) and user preferences.
- Unlimited undo
- x86 disassembler
- Import and export to 20 different formats of binary files, including Intel Hex, Motorola S-Record, Atmel standard etc.
- Ability to find repeating patterns in data
- Pixel viewer to visualise binaries as bitmaps
- Filter text from binary data
- Very fast Boyer-Moore find algorithm
- Highlights selected byte strings in data to ease navigation thru it
- Create structures of simple data types like integers or floating point numbers to better interpret and faster edit data
- Very fast pseudo random number generator
- Allows recording macro scripts to automate tasks
The font used by the application can be changed under menu: View -> Options... I did also have the problem with a very small font, but selecting another font solved that problem.
Yes, it's a good program, and useful. I appreciate that it knows what Intel Hex files are, which apparently HxD does not. But I can't figure out how to "un-highlight" bytes that were highlighted via "Crypto>Byte occurence". The highlighting persists, even after closing the program down and re-opening it. Somewhat maddening. Also, there seems to be very little support now (2014).
