About DiskProbe:

version 1.0.0 beta 5 (22.7.2005)

DiskProbe is a hexadecimal data editor, a tool to view and alter the contents of files, devices, and attributes. It originally comes as part of BeOS and was developed by Robert Polic, Be Inc.
This is the Haiku replacement of DiskProbe. It has been written from scratch to provide the same application for Haiku, even if it has some advantages over the pure R5 version:
- it allows you to search for hexadecimal data as well
- the hexadecimal editor is available for attributes, too
- unlimited undo/redo
- drag&drop in the "new file" window
- and more

There are no more features planned for the final version, but if you find any bugs or inconveniences, I'd be glad to hear about it.

DiskProbe will work on a vanilla BeOS R5 and up.

The application can be put anywhere you want. You can also replace the R5 binary with this one, if you want, but keep in mind that this is a beta release.
If you want to use it from the command line, you should put it somewhere in the path, i.e. in ~/config/bin.

There are no docs for DiskProbe yet, but it is pretty straight-forward to use; if you feel comfortable with the original DiskProbe you should have no problem with this one.
One thing that has changed and you should be aware of, is that DiskProbe always operates on the latest file data. That means, it will apply all the changes you made to the latest version of the file, even if it has been changed since you last saw it.
It does not operate on a single block only like the original DiskProbe, but it will always work on the whole file; you can change several block before commiting them to disk.

"DiskProbe" is written by Axel Dörfler .
