i'm looking for a binary/hex editor

tried hexedit, it's pretty primitive, the one screen at a time is a nuisance for my purposes, it works, but . . .

wishbinvu, library problems, ugh

ihex crashes continually

have not tried bless yet, getting tired

is there one out there that anyone has gotten working well? maybe one that displays hex as decimal to boot?

?

[edited to add that bvi was recommended to me, any comment on that?]

Bugman,

The name is the same 'hexedit', I'm confident the program is different than the one you are referring to.

Table of Contents

The manual I'd recommend saving to disk.

Hexedit also comes with an info page and man page.

Download it from here this server, and I recommend save the source, because it is not particularly easy to find.

ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/editors/terminal/

Compiling.
    ./configure
    make
    make install

The binary will install (default) /usr/bin, this may cause an overwrite of your existing hexedit, which might be a good thing. If you don't want the overwrite, rename /usr/bin/hexedit to something different.

Total files will be three: binary, info page and man page.

Complied size for all files is 236K.

Bruce

For wishbinvu, which tcl/tk did you install? If you tried the ones from the ibiblio repository, replace with the ones linked here.

Plus, maybe Adie is an option?

bruce, similar but different where it counts, much better than the one in the pet repository for sure, thanks!

muggins, lord of the pets!

libs you linked to work, wishbinvu works, much better than what i'd seen in other editors

am trying to work with the baseball simulator in my thread here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38487

all the stats are in bin, so babe ruth hit 3C home runs in 1927, which is why i wanted decimal viewing

will take a look at adie, saw a different post on it last night, was reaching my limits of endurance . . .

Bugman,

Now that you have achieved superior experience, help me please. Which one is the winner?

Bruce

PS with the new hexedit you have to use the buffer option to get some wanted features.

Here is the script I run it with

Code:
/opt/bin/hexedit --buffer --alltext $@

thus we have proved that experience does NOT equal wisdom

well, i have not done anything serious with any of them

adie is a nice little text editor, it SHOWS the binary info, but in an unusable manner, not sure what i'm not seeing here

hexedit is good, both versions do what they're supposed to

ihex still crashes within 15 seconds of opening the test file, there's a debug window, the message i think i always get is

Code:
Assert failed, file: ../Lgi/src/common/Text/GTextView3.cpp, line: 1418
LGilsUtf8(s)


wishbinvu is great, does everything i need, the winner in my book

bugman,

Another, non-console, hex editor is the Mickey hex editor.

An executable is downloadable from http://linux.softpedia.com . Look under category text editors. The file is
mickey-0.1.1.13linuxELFx86.tar.gz

It seems to work, though the site says not on very large files.

Hey, thanks! With Tcl and Tk 8.5.6 (which are built-in packages in the forthcoming Puppy 4.2), I was pretty sure you wouldn't have the library problems you had with the outdated 8.5 alphas; there were some important changes between the alphas and the official 8.5 releases. I just tried wishbinvu in Puppy 4.2 Alpha4 and it worked with no problem.

Cooledit is a nice binary editor:
http://cooledit.2038bug.com/
It includes a compiler interface, a python inetrpretor and a very nice man-page reader which I use. I used to use cooledit quite a lot, but I hardly do any binary editing anymore, so I stick to SciTE. But, I rolled the sources for the 'coolman' man-page reader together with the sources for a man-page search program to create one of the most recommended programs ever -called RTFM:

I like the bvi binary editor, easily built from source:

http://bvi.sourceforge.net/

This is a binary version of vi, so unless you are fond of vi and vim, it may not be to your taste.
