SciTEHexEdit is a basic hex viewer and editor written as a Lua extension for the SciTE editor.

Description: This is a basic hex viewer and editor for SciTE, using only the Lua scripting extension and nothing else. Browsing, editing and saving operations can be performed. There is a hex pane and an ASCII pane. The hex editor automatically opens in monospace mode, is in colour, and changes are highlighted. A console window allows complex commands to be entered. There is also a help screen.

Help Screen

--- Edit Window Help ---

Keypress navigation is recommended. Double-click "buttons" or press
[Space] with the caret on the desired button. Use the console window,
accessed using a period (.) or a backtick (`), for other commands. See
the bottom of the edit window for keypress commands. Also, [Enter]
moves one line down in the edit columns, and [Space] moves the caret
to the next byte in the hex data column.

SciTEHexEdit starts by: (1) loading the file in the current buffer,
ignoring unsaved changes, or (2) using the contents of the untitled
and unsaved buffer. The edit view is automatically positioned where
the caret was in the current buffer.

- Offset column:
Pressing a valid digit changes the address of the page in view, and
the editor will jump to the block in question.

- Hex data column:
Pressing a valid digit changes data in the file. To make the changes
permanent, save the file. Use "revert" to undo.

- ASCII data column:
Pressing a character changes data in the file. Changes can then be
saved or dropped. Not all characters can be entered, because some
keypresses are handled only by SciTE itself.

Data is colour-coded. Unsaved changes are highlighted in yellow. To
customize SciTEHexEdit further, please modify the Lua script itself.

Console Window

--- SciTE Hex Editor Console ---

Enter single commands at prompt line only. Most commands closes the
console window on successful execution. Adding a "-" as a suffix will
stop the console window from closing, e.g. "save-". Commands (which
are case insensitive) are:

  cls                           goto <dec|hex>
  info                          load <filename>
  revert                        save|saveas [<filename>]
  float <float|hex>             number <dec|hex|"string">
  strings                       search <hex|'string'|"regexp">
  exit|close                    help help|about|console|edit|<cmd>
