HexEdit Build Status

HexEdit is a package for editing and displaying data in binary files in hexadecimal format.

Synopsis

dump!(self::HexEd, offset = 0, n::Int = -1)

Displays binary file data beginning at offset and ending at offset + n.

  • offset defaults to 0
  • n defaults to file size - n.

edit!(self::HexEd, datastr::String, offset = 0)

Edits targeted binary file by overwriting data beginning at offset.

  • offset defaults to 0
  • datastr can be in ASCII or hexadecimal format (ie. "foobar" or "0x666f6f626172")

Chunk Hexdump

Dump 16 bytes beginning at offset 0x04

hexedit = HexEd("test.bin")
dump!(hexedit, 0x04, 16)

# 00000004   66 6f 6f 62   61 72 ff ff   ff 00 7f e1   90 e6 67 83   foobar........g.

Hexadecimal Editing (Hex String)

Write foobar to test.bin beginning at offset 0x04

hexedit = HexEd("test.bin")
edit!(hexedit, "0x666f6f626172", 0x04)

Hexadecimal Editing (ASCII string)

Write foobar to test.bin beginning at offset 0x04

hexedit = HexEd("test.bin")
edit!(hexedit, "foobar", 0x04)

Binary Singature Location

Return offset of the start of the hexadecimal signature "b77e"

hexedit = HexEd("test.bin")
offset = find!(hexedit, "0xb77e")
