Add Optional Nth Occurrence To Search

Post by ChrisMaurer » 08 Jan 2016 00:49

When I use HxD on large record-oriented files I often need to look for an error on a random record like 11,487,882. Since the records are variable-length, I can't calculate where to go. Instead I count line feed characters.

For large files there is no decent way of doing this short of writing a C utility.

If you added a search count to the search box it would take a while, but it would get there.
