Hi Alex -- Well on unix/linux there is od (for octal dump). It had an option to display in hex the contents of a file as raw hex, 4-digit (16 bit) words separated by space, 10per line. As I remember, there were also switches to display in octal dump of the same data, or ascii equivalents. But od was not an editor. I believe the old editor vi or vim can display escape sequences of data -- but that isn't hex. I also haven't used vi for ages, so can't say for sure. Now for windows, I don't know what's available. Good luck. --le ----- Original Message ----- From: "Alex Hall" <mehgcap@xxxxxxxxx> To: "Blind Programming List" <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, October 13, 2009 8:16 PM Subject: hex editor? Hi all, I am looking for a simple hex editor to view files (bin, dll, and anything else you can use a hex editor for). I have never really worked with a hex editor before, but I would like the contents displayed in a way that is easy to read, not "hex string, English" or another configuration that means I have to listen to the entire entry just to hear what something means. I hope this makes sense. Obviously, the editor has to be accessible, and free is always good. Any suggestions?
