LXer: Edit and compare giant binary files with lfhex

Published at LXer:

Many hex editors try to copy an entire file into memory before they let you edit it, which explicitly limits the size of the files you can view or edit. lfhex is designed to allow you to edit binary files larger than can fit into your computer's memory. While you might normally not be working with binary files that are larger than your memory, it's good to know that your hex editor can scale to such large files when that situation arises. lfhex can load huge files quickly and does not require large amounts of memory to do so. For example, the documentation mentions that loading a 2GB file requires less than 2MB of RAM.
