shed (simple hex editor)
shed is an easy to use hex editor written for unix/linux using ncurses, with a friendly pico-style interface.
Displays each byte as ascii, hex, decimal, octal and binary.
Allows changes to be input in all of the above (and now with bit toggling in the binary column)
Simple Pico-style interface
Dump to file
Small memory requirments because file is not loaded into memory
Large file support
shed can be downloaded at
. The latest version is 1.15.
Various Linux distributions now appear to have shed in their package database, although this won't always have been updated to the latest version, so I recommened just getting it from source.
