Hello. I have a problem and since so many people here know a thing or two about hex editing, it seemed a good place to ask...
I'm trying to compare two sets of hex code copied from the same file type to see which lines are different. (In this case there is only 1 thing that is different between the files)
The problem I'm having is that when I copy and paste the hex code into Diff Merge or similar programs it pastes as one single line. So what I'm looking for is a program that will automatically create line returns every X amount of characters. I want it to automatically format the same way it is in the hex editor, basically.
Each set of hex code is about 5mbs of text so a second requirement is a program that can handle 10-12mbs of raw text at once.(since I'm comparing two files...) I only mention this because Diff Merge crashes consistently with large text files.
I don't care what kind of program it is, 32bit, 64bit, a text editor, etc. As long as it can automatically set line returns at user specified intervals.
So, does anyone have any ideas?
Edit: A user on the UltraEdit forums informed me that UltraEdit could do this through a script and was even kind enough to provide one for me. However, I haven't tested it yet and UltraEdit isn't free and only has a 30 day trial so I'm still interested in other options - preferably freeware.
Does EMACS support a scripting system? I just thought of EMACS like 10 seconds ago as I was typing, lol. Hmmm, gotta look into that....
