Command Line Options?

Post by mfonseca » 23 Feb 2015 23:16

Hi, I like a lot the HxD editor for its flexibility, and was wondering if there is a list of command line options for invoking it.

I would like to write a batch file that invokes a working environment for an elder user who needs to have HxD open a specific file as Read-Only in order to perform manual searches on it, so I don't want the user to do it by himself, in order to prevent him from accidentally damaging the data file.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance,

Miguel

Hi Miguel,

You can open a file by passing it to HxD on the command line:

Code: Select all

HxD.exe <filename>
, where <filename> may have to be enclosed in " if it contains spaces, as usual for any program under Windows.
Except for this option, HxD unfortunately has no command line support.

Does the latest version of HxD include some additional command line switches, if any?
I remember there were several forum's threads about the command line switches/options, but the readme.txt does not seem to mention any.

Nope, there are none, besides the ability to open files.
