How come that every Hex editor on Linux either sucks or is proprietary.

ImHex might be nice in the future but it's still a bit buggy.

I managed to what I wanted with ImHex and it's pattern editor. Great feature.

@TeddyDD I ended up writing one because I was so annoyed. Have you thought about making your own?

@neauoire
Yeah, but I wanted to debug IPC protocol, not start new project 🥲

@TeddyDD well when I made mine I had a problem to solve too, but I figured that spending a day making a hex editor would pay off in the end, and it did. Everytime I need one I don't spend a day looking for one.

@neauoire
Fair enough, with limited scope it shouldn't take forever to write one

@TeddyDD lemme know if you have any questions, maybe I can help.

@TeddyDD keep the scope within "the most features you can pack in about 8 hours of writing this thing"
