HexEdit is a hexadecimal file editor that handles both data and resource forks. It is the most widely used editor of its kind on the platform, and can handle file sizes of up to four gigabytes with ease, yet has memory requirements of less than a megabyte (with color turned off). It can compare whole files for similarities or differences and will soon be able to do so for any subset within the files. A great tool that allows you to edit and analyze the contents for either the data or resource fork of any type of file.

One of the few apps so helpful it has a place in my sidebar in the finder. An excellent application for looking at any file to see what makes it tick.

Plain, fast and simple but with some unique features (e.g. PPC-Disassembler ^^). Compare files and auto backup round it up. Lion 10.7.x compatible.

Meanwhile there are other nice hex editor out there but this is still my favorite. However I'm missing some features:

- x86 (32/64 bit) disassembler
- value overview (dec, little/big endian, float, etc.)
- memory editing/dump (ya, I'm a cheater :P)

Would pay for those features.

For now: Thanks for this great tool!

Wonderful hex editor. Clearly the best I ever used. Simple, fast and bug free.
Always handy to do some patching ;)

Great work, I use this all the time.

Would be even better with an "Open Recent" menu. :)

Thanks!

Why the satanic symbol for an app this useful?

Just for the record, it's not a satanic symbol. It's a hex sign, which were thought to ward off evil.

And then there's the whole hexadecimal (base 16) editor thing...

Actually this application goes back ten years, and two or three developers or so. And this was the original 256 color 32x32 icl8 icon. (ResEdit, anyone?) This nifty looking one must have been ditched cause it looked too much like a document, rather than an application.
