I use the built-in hex editor of UltraEdit http://www.ultraedit.com/index.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=10 .
Not as powerful as the professional hex editors mentioned above but enough for me. It's nice to switch between hex and text and for the price you get one of the best text editors on earth. 30something euro's when I bought it.

Grt.

Oh dear, please let's not get into a holy war about which is better, I'm sure it is all just personal taste for betterness.

So far of all the links my favourite is Yuri. No overbloat that I don't use, simple and clear. Perfect for me, but that don't mean it is better than any other, just that I like it.

BTW: Thanks to everyone for the links, and I hope that this list can still grow as more hex editors, come about. It is nice to keep up with the available tools of the trade.

Maybe some user reviews Very Happy

A tools of the trade meta-thread would be nice. There were threads about compilers, ide's etc.
Indeed a cleanup would make it much easier to read Smile

best way would be new (moderated) thread, in which we will collect all links - like "important threads"

Hi, guys!

I know, I know - probably this subject is constantly prevalent throughout many fasm threads, anyway:

What are your favourite hex editors - whether payed or free?

Lately I have found this one: http://www.hhdsoftware.com/
Payed versions have unlimited undo, branched history, very cool selection mode (that allows you to select bytes using CTRL and SHIFT in a Windows-similar way), structure viewer (where you can simply add new structures definitions using quite a C-like syntax), memory and disk viewer and, of course, disassembler.

Does anyone knows anything comparable?

Cheers

HxD already comes with an option to add the following entries to the context menu. Are they not applied for all file types?

Open in HxD
