Hex Workshop 184.108.40.20619
Hex Workshop is a hexadecimal editor that enables you to edit data from a lot of binary files. The beginner will notice that the interface looks very much like a text editor with some advanced features. It allows you to open a file and view the raw data it's made of (hexadecimal). It is very simple to find a text string or a hex value and to cut, copy, paste or edit the content of the file.
To mark important parts of the code the program allows you to add color maps that will change the color of the text and the background. The application allows you to navigate through the data by jumping to a file or sector location and if you want to review a part of the file you can save it as a bookmark.
The user can edit the data by performing basic logical and arithmetic operations or applying functions and conditional statements. The program includes the most common conditional statements such as IF, IF ELSE clauses and the SWITCH statement. To view the data information you can use the data inspector that displays the properties of a selected element. The Compare Tool allows you to compare two files and find the differences. The advanced user can take advantage of the Resynchronizing Compare that will provide detailed information about the data pieces that have been deleted or inserted.
Hex Workshop features tools designed for the advanced users such as the expression calculator that supports variables, conditionals, iteration and arithmetic operations or the Base Converter that will allow you to quickly convert data between, decimal hexadecimal or binary.
The program's interface can be customized with specific color codes for the text or the background and you can use the preset toolbars to quickly access the commands that you use frequently. The main window is able to view multiple files either in a tabbed work area or by tiling the windows. If you prefer to use keyboard shortcuts the application allows you to define one for almost every command or menu item.
All of the features included in this software recommend it as solid development tool for programmers that work on a Windows platform.
