For Mac OS X
This app works with: QEMU

A fast and clever open source hex editor for Mac OS X by the legendary ridiculous_fish.

Insert, delete, rearrange. Hex Fiend does not limit you to in-place changes like some hex editors.

Work with huge files. Hex Fiend can handle as big a file as you’re able to create. It’s been tested on files as large as 118 GB.

Small footprint. Hex Fiend does not keep your files in memory. You won’t dread launching or working with Hex Fiend even on low-RAM machines.

Fast. Open a huge file, scroll around, copy and paste, all instantly. Find what you’re looking for with fast searching.

Smart saving. Hex Fiend knows not to waste time overwriting the parts of your files that haven’t changed, and never needs temporary disk space.

Data inspector. Interpret data as integer or floating point, signed or unsigned, big or little endian...

Embeddable! It’s really easy to incorporate Hex Fiend’s hex or data views into your app. Its permissive BSD-style license won’t burden you.

Downloads #1 and #2 are of version 2.0, the latest for PPC and Tiger both (Universal binary & source code). Released in 2009.

Other versions can be found at the official website and GitHub repository.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

That blog was a very interesting discovery. And this seems like a really neat hex editor. Thanks for sharing!
