HEX change and replace

Post by prino »

Can you look into making the option more user-friendly by allowing the specification of mixed strings, i.e. something like 'hh hh hh hh'x+'ASCII' (where the '+' is a user specifiable character) would be even more useful.

It's not regex I'm after, its really hex+ASCII, which is used to work on Pascal strings and certain EBCDIC in files I work with, and where I need to change both the length and content of the string, including it's length field.

But that's what you are going to get :-p

To search for a text that you would express in Pascal like this,

Code: Select all

'Some Text '#$76#$89' and some more'
you could write the following regex:

Code: Select all

Some Text \x76\x89 and some more
