[ANN] Hex-It! - final release

 [1/1] from: D::Weyand::gmx::de at: 1-May-2006 6:36

Visit and take a look at the final release of Hex-It!. Hex-It! is a small but powerful hex-editor. You can use this tool to analyse or alter the "fingerprints" for any kind of files. Known first as a contribution to the REBOL Demo 2006 contest, the final release with enhanced features is available now. Features of Hex-It! v1.2.0: --------------------------- * cross platform hex-editor * free "save-feature" for small files sized lesser 15 KB, to edit larger files purchase a license-key that unlocks this limitation * enhanced spot navigation with mouse scroll-wheel support * non blocking file access * support of large files (a maximum chunk of 1MB file-data is only held in memory at once) Some notes and useful tips & tricks on the usage of Hex-It!: ------------------------------------------------------------ - Modifications of files were automatically saved on exit, if you load another file or if a different chunk of the same file is selected. - Byte selection: + Select a byte with a left mouse button (LMB) click on the hexadecimal values to the left. The byte is highlighted then. + If a byte is selected, either use the cursor keys or the scroll-wheel of the mouse to scroll through the bytes of the file. + Change a selected byte with plus (+) & minus (-) or just enter its new value. Single characters, three digit numbers or single hexadecimal values are valid. + Use the right mouse button (RMB) to deselect a highlighted byte. - Spot-navigation: + The spot specifies the index/position of a byte in the file. If no byte is selected it shows the position of the top left byte displayed. + Enter a number to set directly the spot to a byte-position. + Skip a certain amount of bytes relative to the current spot by using plus (+) & minus (-), e.g. "+10000" skips 10000 bytes forward and "-1000" skips 1000 bytes backwards. + Skip to end of file: Click with the RMB on the arrow-down Spot-button or use the "End"-Key. + Skip to first byte of file: Click with the RMB on the arrow-up Spot-button or use the "Home"-Key. - Seek: + ASCII- or Hex-Strings are valid queries. + LMB click on the "Seek"-button seeks from the current position. + RMB click on the "Seek"-button seeks from the beginning of the file. Please note, that the license of this release is not BSD like anymore. Any feedback welcome - Dirk
