Hex Editor - bvi

Public domain

After examining about 10 different hex editors, the best hex editor of my choice is : bvi

snip from bvi official site:
The bvi is a display-oriented editor for binary files, based on the vi texteditor.

snip from bvi manual:
Similar to the text search commands there are additional hex-search functions '\' and '#' which allow to search for any byte value. Example: "\62 76 69" will search for the string "bvi". Spaces between hex value are optional, so searching for "6775636B6573" will find "guckes".

Installation progress in Slackware 12.0:

cd /usr/src
tar zxf bvi-1.3.2.src.tar.gz
cd bvi-1.3.2
make && make install
