Hex

Maybe I’m old-fashioned. I’m still using Mathemæsthetics, Inc’s Resorcerer 2.4.1 to peer into random files as hex (or ASCII or Unicode). I used the heck out of it in the days of resource forks, which is clearly less important now. Nonetheless, I’ve not happened upon an outstanding OS X GUI hex editor. (Not that I’ve done that much research, mind you.)

Anyone have their own pet program? (Does it do regexp? Does it support binary-format scheme files that you can attempt to apply to the data?)

I use Hex Fiend. Its simple, Its fast and its free.

Although from what i can see it doesn't support REGEX or Data Templates.
