Hi Nuno,

Its not a binary editor, its an Oracle block editor. i am sure there are
some on this list who have enough internals knowledge to write one but
it would involve a huge effort to replicate BBED.

But yes i agree totally with Mladen and yourself, the password should
not have been given out on a public forum. 

Thanks Nuno,

kind regards
