Re: Deterministic RNG

Thanks for the link of this nice compact code.
From what I can tell it is only for floating points numbers, though. I am not sure how well the guarantees transfer to integers.

Re: Checksum calculation feature visibility problem

It came from a resize while designing that went unnoticed, since the settings where different in the local INI file. Thanks for reporting.

Fixed in the development version.

Re: Vertical bar on the right side of HxD's window

Maybe it's some kind of tool or driver issue?

Thanks for informing me of the current state. If you ever figure out what triggers the issue, let me know :)

Re: unicode two bytes chars, how can I enter ?

Thanks, for your feedback. As can be seen in both neo and wxmedit, UTF-8 support is hacked into the grid based UI, adding spaces after characters that are encoded as two or more bytes, which makes it hard to distinguish between actual spaces and filler spaces. Especially when a character is made up ...

Re: Deterministic RNG

Hi, I deleted your other post in support, since it was a duplicate. For a truly (or at least cryptographically secure) random number generator this probably wont suffice. Do you want to wipe data or what is the purpose of this change? Because in this case, there might be other points to keep in mind...

Re: Data inspector: Navigation to next or previous element of same type

Implemented a toolbar in the data inspector in the current development version, similar to the navigator for the disk (image) editor. Possibly add another toolbar under the main menu, for setting the byte offset directly using a spin edit and incrementing/decrementing the offset in byte steps. This ...

Re: Vertical bar on the right side of HxD's window

I tested it again under Windows 7 with Aero enabled. The black border on the side, when you resize from the right, is visible. This is normal and because of how Windows is slow about updating MDI childs / the MDI client. WinMerge is also a MDI application, that's why you may notice the same issue. B...

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

This is related to the other plan for a structural view, but the text editing should be very quick, without creating any template definition in advance if I never plan to edit this data again. This editing mode could even work in 8-bit mode, to make deletions faster. Currently, no other function ha...

Re: Insufficient rights even as administrator

A quick search shows this: https://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewtopic.php?t=711 Apparently your hardware uses a special floppy format, as suspected. So try Linux with a native built-in floppy drive, or if this fails, maybe somebody in that forum link can help you further. If you get it to work, or cr...

Re: Insufficient rights even as administrator

It's unlikely diskprobe will work any better, if dd fails as well. There is only one way to access floppy disks or harddisks under Windows. I suggested dd because it uses the minimum set of APIs. If it fails, it's probably at a driver/file system level when doing simple reads of the disk. I actually...

Re: Insufficient rights even as administrator

What version of HxD and Windows are you using? Was the drive name A:? It is probably due to how Windows determines the size of a floppy disk (usually assuming some kind of file system it can read). Under Windows NT+ there are no "pure" physical floppy disks anymore. Yeah, searching the web turned up...

Re: unicode two bytes chars, how can I enter ?

What tool did you find? It might be interesting as inspiration for UTF-8 support (which I am developing right now), though most hex editor I saw have some bugs.

Re: unicode two bytes chars, how can I enter ?

HxD does not support UTF-8 in the text column, yet. See this thread: https://forum.mh-nexus.de/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1004 What you can do is write your text in a text editor, save it as UTF-8 without BOM, then open it in HxD. You can copy the relevant byte sequences from this file and paste them into ...
