Re: Disassembly feature as a 3rd party extendable plug-in?

Without a response, nothing will be done regarding this feature.

Re: Disassembly feature as a 3rd party extendable plug-in?

I hadn't considered the case of more than one relative branch operand (or a combination of relative branch and absolute jump operands, for that matter). To me the solution is simple, however: bail. Unless Maël would be willing to modify HxD to allow for two separate go to links, there's nothing we ...

Re: Disassembly feature as a 3rd party extendable plug-in?

Writing this ISA definition did make me wonder one thing: how hard would it be to add the go to functionality to branched instructions? From the perspective of the ISA definitions that wouldn't be so hard (would need a boolean column in the CSV that signifies a branch instruction), but it doesn't l...

Re: Disassembly feature as a 3rd party extendable plug-in?

So in conclusion, I will add formatting options such that you can control leading zeros, casing, and prefix/postfix style of hexadecimal numbers, and casing of instructions/operands in assembly. Those options will be passed to the plugin, like the integer options are passed now, so that the plugin ...

Re: Is this a bug or I am doing something wrong?

Although I can see the mp3 file is 16 bits, when I export it only exports the first 12-bits out of each line of code. Hi, I am not sure what you base your assumptions on. 16 bits per sample would be what the decoded data stream is, since MP3 is compressed, you cannot just browse through the file li...

Re: Accessing USB-Stick Firmware's bytes

I would suggest using a software like TestDisk or some file recovery software instead of using a hex editor to try to fix the file system, if you don't know intimately how the file system / partitioning system works. It's not something you can explain briefly, or without having all the information. ...

Re: Cleanest/best practical approach?

Regarding the rest of your question: there is no import functionality for source code, since there are many possible syntactical variations. But Python should be able to generate binary files just fine, and Python can also parse Python code as well, so Python itself is probably a good option to solv...

Python is available in a development version of HxD (not final/fully tested yet) under the menus Edit|Copy as or File|Export as. You can find the current (not final/fully tested yet) HxD.exe as part of the translation package: https://mh-nexus.de/downloads/BabelfishForHxD.zip Just extract the folder...

Sorry, not if it can cause all kinds of random bugs. The support burden will be on me.

Re: Cannot be implemented: Feature request: Undo & Redo after save

It's not a problem "for me" and not strange! The question comes up frequently, which is why my reply was short. You have only a few options to ensure file consistency: Lock the file, make a copy, or use Windows transactional filesystem services (e.g., used for shadow copy). The latter is n...

Re: Feature request: Full Undo & Redo!

After the file is saved undo cannot be applied anymore, since the diff info is tied to the unmodified file.
This is a consequence of the large file support.

Re: Ability to set starting Offset

Could I also add the option to fill the remaining unused space with a set value when saving a file? When programming an 8K ROM, you use an 8K BIN file and usually fill it with something like the binary representation of a NOP instruction. If you open a file, the only undefined region would be the l...

Re: Ability to set starting Offset

I agree, banking will be difficult, e.g., when searching a file/stream, as it would break a fundamental assumption (each byte has exactly one address). You'd only find data for the currently active bank. For display you could have a kind of listbox or arrow buttons to select the bank, but that would...

Re: Ability to set starting Offset

I think I have an option that integrates better with the rest: Add an entry to the extras/tools menu, to open a memory image. Then it would insert a folded region of undefined data (depending on the file type, or file contents), just like in the RAM editor/virtual memory editor as well. Additional t...
