Gentle Explorer ,

In Hex format it would be nice to see the ASCII and HEX linkage

It’s very difficult to coorelate the HEX and ASCII when viewing. It would be nice to move the mouse over an ASCII character and see the cooresponding HEX be highlighted. Or, it would be nice if the ASCII was clustered into 4 character groups to match with the 8 HEX groups. As a result, you spend a lot of time counting characters into the displayed field to match them up.

Good - If the files is supported

If the file type that you’re trying to view is supported it works great. Sadly it doesn’t report much information on MP3 or other audio files.

The text view is pretty cool though. Definitely worth a look!

Swf

Most swf games work in this program but, the frame isnt wide enough to show the whole entire game and there is no option for full screen. Please fix this
