Re: Checksum method

Sorry for the late reply, I was away. It corresponds to CRC-32 04C11DB7 <crc-32> as found under: http://protocoltool.sourceforge.net/CRC%20list.html The source code is not related, but they should produce the same results. Or see the CRC-32 entry here (polynomial 0x04C11DB7): https://en.wikipedia.or...

Re: HxD crashes at startup

Good to know. This was a pointer truncation error and the fix will be officially available in the next minor release.

Re: Add HxD to WinGet Repository

Thanks, that's a good suggestion.

What would unattended mode chose as options, only the default, or is there a way to configure setup?

Re: Support High-DPI GDI Rendering

It's written in Delphi. The issue is the price of the current version, and the need for a new set of icons (for which I have certain requirements), and some of which I made myself, and would need to remake in higher res.

Re: Predefined deletion procedures

If I mark an area, select "Fill selection" in the drop-down and then click OK, the previously marked area is displayed with red zeros. I made no selection - regarding NullBytes or DOD Sanitizing. Yeah, changed bytes are marked in red (until you save). Someone asked me if he could make a mistake her...

Re: Predefined deletion procedures

If you make no selection, the function "fill selection" is not available (grayed in the menu). It always applies to the selection. That's why there is another function "Insert bytes"/"Bytes einfügen". "Löschverfahren"/"Deletion procedures" really mean that you overwrite the bytes of the selection, t...

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Filtering out invalid text, e.g., for Thai, is not done by default by Uniscribe and just a possibility (from http://archives.miloush.net/michkap/archive/2010/12/18/10106789.html ): The code that "filters" these characters sits in code called by the EDIT control that checks for two things: Does the s...

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Charmap or simple style rendering For the charmap or simple style rendering, a solution could be to use ScriptShape with psa->s.fDisplayZWG = True to reliably know if glyphs are missing for a codepoint and also handle precomposed characters that might be rendered with several glyphs. No need to loo...

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

So when considering this whole chaos, the solution is a bit complicated. Neither ScriptShape nor ScriptGetCMap will properly look up a glyph (or glyph sequence) for each codepoint. And GetGlyphOutline or GetGlyphIndicies are limited to the BMP. We have two goals: Finding missing (=default) glyphs in...
