Hex Editor for Raspberry-Pi

Hex Editor Raspberry PiSometimes you just need to view or maybe a binary file and here I’ve done that on the compiled file for asteroids.

I can’t recommend doing that, but I wanted to try hexedit on the Raspberry Pi. I ran it against the asteroids compiled program and found the text.

If you look I’ve changed the d in starfield (first line of text) to an e.┬áThen I saved it. The program, not unreasonably crashed when run with an error in the errolog.txt file: Couldn’t open images/starfiele.png

You install hexedit with

sudo apt install hexedit

and run with the file you want to view/edit.

hexedit asteroids

To view all the command press F1. It displays the man page for hexedit. Have fun!
