This is great ! A kind of resedit for binary files. I suggest you join grammars for as many file types as you can ! Maybe you could federate grammars, so that people could send them to you, and maybe we could get them with each updates, or download them automatically once vetted by you ? Keep up the good work !

I am a fan of HexFiend, which is great and free. Yet I have purchased Synalyze It (I actually bought the Pro version), which seriously kicks ass. Synalyze It is totally innovative. The difference is maybe like the difference between a text editor that displays a packed JSON file dumbly, and a syntax-aware text editor that pretty-prints your JSON and shows it in color. Except the benefit is even larger for binary files. Congratulations to the developer for a great idea, and a very nice implementation. Suggestion: the grammar chooses whether to display the values in hex or decimal. Let the user override that. Very often I want to switch between decimal and hex, and back again (without necessarily altering the grammar). This could be in a contextual pop up menu, or whatever

This may be a good app (I haven’t tried it), but I’ve found HexEdit to be an excellent binary editor with many features — and it’s FREE. There are several other free ones available here as well (wxHexEditor, Hex Fiend, 0xED, iBored, FileCarver and several others). Though it’s apparently on sale just now, I can’t see a reason to pay for a hex editor.

The main reason why this application was developed is to allow modeling a binary file format and automatically decode files.
The hex editor is more an add-on than the central piece. The reason why people love Synalyze It! is that they have to analyze a binary format just once and make assumptions while reverse engineering.

FYI, the developer seems to now be releasing this as a universal Intel/PPC binary.

There's a new page - http://www.synalysis.net/the-grammar-page.html - that provides grammars for some file formats.

Now it's even more comfortable: This page can be used to install grammars with one click: http://www.synalysis.net/formats.xml . Also, grammars are now suggested automatically if you open a file that's supported already.

Don't know how this happened, I requested to update the entry. Only Synalyze It! Pro costs $ 29.99 but there is still a free version with a reasonable feature set.

The "free" version is $4.99 on the Apple Store. A very reasonable price, but not the same thing as free.

You're right - $ 4.99 is not free. Just download the free version on http://www.synalysis.net/downloads/
