Hex Editing

Hex Editing

Does anyone know how to open up a file as a hex dump kind of thing? And be able to edit it? Thanks

RE: Hex Editing

I use a nifty little shareware utility from Breakpoint called HexWorkshop32. Found it on the WWW.

RE: Hex Editing

Using MSVC ?? Select file Open, select the file then under "Open As" select binary

Not using MSVC, get CodeWright from www.premia.com. You'll never need another editor. Open the file, click button on toolbar to toggle between text and hex. Hex even maintains syntax highlighting


RE: Hex Editing

CodeWright is nice. So is Multi-Edit for Windows from American Cybernetics (I don't have their web page memorized, but a search should turn it up). Actually, I think that almost any text editor that's designed for programmers would handle that. [IDE's are another matter. They should, but they rarely do. :-( ]

RE: Hex Editing

Hackman is pretty good for hex editing : http://members.tripod.com/~techmasters/
