I downloaded the XVI32 hex editor some time ago, just out of pure curiosity. I read somewhere that they are good for editing programs, but all i get is gibberish. As i understand it, programs are just line after line of processor instructions, with the ocational instance of plain text. I usually get about the same when opening a dll with notepad.
First of, i want to know exactly what it is a hex editor does. Does it like, read 8 digits and interprets that as one symbol, or maybe its 16. What does it do with the actual information from the HDD?
Second, what sort of files can i open it with?
