Here's your poor man's solution: 1. Use 'od' to get a hex dump of your files: od -t x1 (or similar). 2. Use 'diff' to get the difference of the dumps 3. Use Emacs' (M-x) hexl-mode to edit a file in hexadecimal (M-C-x). The last one is probably not suitable if you have no Emacs experience previously, but that's how I have solved binary diff and editing lately. -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
