coming from HIEW

Hi!!

I'm coming from "hiew" and I'm testing several hex editors, because my registered version is getting really old. So far, hxd is the one I've liked most :)

I wanted to suggest one feature from HIEW and another one from SCiTE (it's a text editor, but it's a great feature I'm missing ;) )

The one coming from hiew is opening all the files with wildcards like "HxD *.exe"

The second one is being able to switch between edited files with Alt+number (i.e. Alt+1 to edit the first file, Alt+5 to edit the fifth, ...)

Thanks! :)
Kak

How about using a command line which supports wildcard by default, because then you could use that for every program and IMO it's a duty of the shell.

well, I really hadn't thought about it, never used a shell replacement since 4DOS for DOS :)
Any suggestions?
