ghex(1) A GNOME Hex Editor


ghex [options] files...


This manual page documents briefly the ghex command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNOME help system.

ghex allows the user to load data from any file, view and edit it in either hex or ascii. A must for anyone playing games that use non-ascii format for saving.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
