Question: Do you think adding a hex viewer/hex editor component to Emerald Editor is a good idea?
Definitely! Make it central to EE!! - 4 (14.3%)
It's worth considering, possibly as a plugin? - 21 (75%)
I don't know; I wouldn't use it. - 1 (3.6%)
Nah. It's not right for EE, it's not really a 'text' processing feature. - 2 (7.1%)
NO!! Don't ever add it in! - 0 (0%)

Several people have asked about having a hex editor feature as part of EE. Now, my feeling is that it probably should be available as a plugin rather than a core feature, but what does everyone else think?

(I did try and be serious with the poll but I couldn't help myself  Grin - I've been here at work since before 6am today and it's now 12.20pm and I'm going to be here for another 4 hours yet... darn phones and work Roll Eyes)

Have you seen XVI32.exe??  Its a basic hex editor.

I figure if you did have a hex editor mode it would simply set EE to be in column mode with a limited number of columns.  However, if you wanted more features specific to hex editing I'd say it belongs in a plugin.  The average user of EE, in my estimation, won't need it.

I don't think it should be core, but a plugin (maybe an official one) would be viable.

I ocassionally use a hex editor and when I do, like Feldon, I use XVI32. For the sake of convenience it might be useful to have one as a plugin.
