Re: DataInspector: provide some Varint decoding for Git

There was a missing text file (which I use during development), which I added to the download now (same link).

I am not sure why you got a kernel.dll error, though. Was it with a compiled plugin or just the pure devel version of HxD? If with a plugin, Delphi or VC++?

Re: Is there a way to view the memory of a hidden process?

You can try to start HxD as administrator and see if it appears then.

If it does not appear in the list, it is because this process' memory cannot be read/accessed.

Re: Feature: Add Half (float16) to data inspector

I made a plugin framework, you might want to check it out for adding various data types.

I'll probably add float16 some time in the future, but no time frame, so this might be useful until then:

Re: User defined data inspectors

I have the plugin framework almost ready, and will publish it on GitHub with instructions soon.

Are you ready to test it and let me know of any issues?

Re: DataInspector: provide some Varint decoding for Git

Since a couple people have voiced interest in extending the data inspector, I will add a plugin interface.

Re: Feature: Add Half (float16) to data inspector

Will not be easy (since I need to make a special decoder for float16 to string values and back -- this doesn't come by default in most languages). But should be well documented and useful. P.S.: What would you need it for? I mostly know of float16 being used in deep learning, but I don't see why you...

Re: DataInspector: provide some Varint decoding for Git

Let me know if you are interested in this plugin approach, as mentioned in my last mail.

Re: DataInspector: provide some Varint decoding for Git

From previous email exchange: It could be added to the data inspector. The basic unsigned format seems reasonably simple, the more compact ones less. I found this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable-length_quantity which also describes the Git encoding. However it is slightly confusing an...

Re: Deterministic RNG

Note for future implementation: Another thing that will have to change, is that currently the passes are done only in memory It is comforting that one pass is probably enough. But with high degree of chaotic randomness. The "wipe securely" function under tools/extras will use several passes (if you...

Re: Deterministic RNG

Note for future implementation: Another thing that will have to change, is that currently the passes are done only in memory (except if you chose wipe file). This allows for undo, but defeats the purpose of multi-pass wiping a portion of the file/disk, for example. So a direct mode would be necessar...

Datainspector: byte $C0 in Int8 row (in hexadecimal number mode) should not display as ffffffc0

Instead it should display as C0, the same way as UInt8. This is due to converting it to a signed Int8 that is then passed on to a (U)Int32 or an (U)Int64, at which point a sign extension happens, which show as leading F's. Also look how others handle this, as usually hexadecimals are always positive...
