(Tiny Hexer) It's also my favorite tool to read binary files.

Over the years, I never found anything better for this task.

Not my prefered choice of poison! ;)
But scripting sounds interesting.

@Nuno
WinHex the best Hexeditor around :frusty: or if the emphasis is on free, HxD.

I see exactly €73,90 worth of reasons to prefer NOT Winhex (the Professional version that offers scripting support)

@Nuno
@Medevil
@risolutore

If I wanted to make a lousy Poll of the type "Which is your prefeered Hex editor", I do know how to make one.

I hate polls. :frusty:

Now that everything is on a new topic, everyone is welcome to post his preference.

Come on.. you had all the work creating this shiny new topic and we might as well be blessed with a good poll to vote our favorite tools.. :frusty:

Pretty please? :frusty:

WinHex the best Hexeditor around

Never tried it out.

I do prefer free software but if the cost of the license justifies the quality of the tool then I probably won't mind thought lately I wouldn't have much chances to afford license costs anyways.

Guess I've grown so happy with TinyHex that I didn't had much reasons to find an alternative.

Lately, when moving to Ubuntu and other OS's I did looked for a good open source hex editor but still ended up either running tinyhex from WINE or using VirtualBox to run from an emulated XP.

What are the advantages that grab your attention when compared to TinyHex?

If all you wanna do is look at a file once or twice a year, WinHex is pure overkill.
But when you need overkill, WinHex is the way to go. :unsure:
It's a hexeditor, diskeditor, rameditor, ...

When i was looking for a hexeditor, i was looking them all over and WinHex was enough better than the rest, that even with the price tag, it looked like the best deal.
The only downside is, that there are no lifetime free updates.

WinHex is shareware. You can read about it or download it it here.
The page is available in english, german and spanish.

pspad is my favorite since it can be also a powerfull text/script editor too, and it's free.

PSPad is also my favorite text/hex editor in last few years.
But for editing disk/MBR and installing GRUB4DOS MBR, I use HxD.
Tiny hexer seems good. I will try it.
