shed - simple hex editor with a pico-style interface




A simple hex editor with a pico-style interface.

Each line of the shed display represents one byte of the file. Each lines consists of the
offset of that byte from the start of the file, the ascii value of the byte, and then the
byte's value in various bases. All values are unsigned.

When a command asks you for input, entering a zero-length string or pressing ^C will
cancel the command. When searching, entering a zero-length string will use the previous
search word, if one exists.

Note that there is no save key. This is because the file is not loaded into memory, so
when you edit it the change is made directly to disk.


-r / --readonly
open FILE read only

-s / --start=OFFSET
position cursor to offset

-H / --hex
start in hex mode (hex offsets etc.)

-L / --length=LENGTH
set length of file to LENGTH. Useful for special files where shed cannot obtain the
length with stat.

-h / --help
show help and exit

-v / --version
show version and exit


arrow keys
move cursor around

pgup / ^Y
cursor up 16 pgdown / ^V cursor down 16

home / ^A
start of line (ascii column)

end / ^E
end of line (binary column)

space / e
edit value at cursor. You are asked to enter the new value in the format of the
current column the cursor is in - eg. if you are in the hex column, it will ask for
the new value in hex.

1 / 2 / 4
set size of cursor in bytes, in the hex/dec/oct columns (and binary if in
traditional mode).

` (backtick)
toggle the endianness of multi-byte values (when cursor size is 2 or 4)

s / w / ^w / f / F3
search. Search string is asked for in the format of the current cursor column. In
ascii, just enter the string in ascii. In the others, enter the values separated
by spaces. eg to search for ABC from the decimal column you would enter "65 66 67"
(without the quotes).

^f / ^b
search shortcut for forwards/backwards respectivly.

r / n / F3
repeat previous search

t toggle whether offset numbers and cursor position etc are in dec or hex.

b toggle binary mode column behaviour (bit edit mode vs traditional)

d dump to file.

j jump to byte. enter a byte number, or 'top' or 'end'. Can be suffixed with K, M or

a change the mode of the ascii column (printable only/c-style extended chars/'man
ascii' descriptions)

p toggle 'preview' mode.

x / ^x exit
