010 Editor Version 4.0 Press Release
For Immediate Release
010 Editor Delivers Professional Template-Based Hex Editing
SweetScape Software has released 010 Editor v. 4.0, an all-purpose Windows and Mac editor that makes it easy to edit any text file, hex file, drive or process on your computer. Unlike simple programmers' text editors, 010 Editor uses binary templates that are powerful enough to parse just about any binary file format.
010 Editor's binary templates are easy to write. Instead of only showing you the raw hexadecimal table that programmers are used to seeing, 010 Editor displays a C/C++ struct-style layout that can also include if, for, and while statements, plus functions and complex expressions. If you need to look at the contents of a BMP, ZIP, or WAV file, 010 Editor will parse the data structure for easy editing. SweetScape offers a free library of templates for many common file types.
More than a simple text and hex editor, 010 Editor delivers a library of sophisticated editing tools that programmers can use to speed their way through analysis and debugging tasks. There are full Find, Replace, Find in Files, and Replace in Files functions for a wide variety of data types. The built-in Binary Comparison tool analyzes byte-by-byte differences between two files. The Histogram tool lets you count and visualize the occurrences of data in your files. You can even compute check sums and hash algorithms in CRC-16, CRC-32, and other popular formats.
Programmers can automate their editing operations with more than 275 functions using 010 Editor's C/C++-like scripting syntax. Scripts are fully integrated with the program's binary templates so you can automate your file modification work. The company's script archive contains a collection of scripts that you can use immediately, and the archive is growing each month. You can even run your scripts from the command line.
New features in version 4.0 include word-wrap, support for very large files, a handy task bar for executing common functions, a new file bar that provides an intuitive way to run templates and scripts, and nearly 50 other new functions for templates and scripts.
Whether you're a software developer who needs a full-featured text editor for writing new programs, a maintenance programmer who needs a template-based hex editor to unravel the structure of data files, a network or database administrator who needs to interrogate and modify files on your company's drives, or a troubleshooter who needs to look at the memory that running processes are using, 010 Editor has the tools that you need.
010 Editor v. 4.0 runs under Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS X 10.5/10.6/10.7, and costs $129.95(US) for a single-user commercial license, or $49.95 for home or academic use. You can purchase 010 Editor or download a fully-functional 30-day trial version from www.sweetscape.com/.
