What's New in Version 6.0

SweetScape Software is happy to announce 010 Editor v6.0 which is now available as a 64-bit and a 32-bit download (32-bit programs can use a maximum of 2 GB of memory but a 64-bit program can use all the memory in the machine). Version 6.0 has a new look for the Startup page:

and a new look for the File Bar/Ruler above each editor:

Version 6 now supports regular expressions for all Find operations (enable Search with Regular Expressions in the Find Bar Options). For example, to search for all IP addresses in a file use the regular expression '\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}':

As well Find speed is increased, up to 10 times faster on some searches. A new tutorial is included for learning to write Binary Templates:

Note that tutorials are located on the Help menu. The Template Results can now be exported as XML:

A number of new enhancements are included for example when closing multiple modified files a new dialog is displayed:
