It is quite astounding, but I'm unable to find a decent hex editor for GNU/Linux -- let alone a really good one.
I don't really care if it is GUI or console based, but it has to work properly, the curses-based ones that I've tried somehow manage to corrupt its own display by merely scrolling through the file being edited.
So, my question is, what is a good hex editor for GNU/Linux? If possible I'd gladly like to know both the name of a console based one and another GUI-based one. What do you guys use?

unfortunately, I've been so far unable to locate a great one. What I do is use VIM, if you load a binary file, and run
it will convert the file to hex. if you run
it will reverse it. It is not a GREAT hex editor, actualy it's pretty bad, but it is the only thing I've found that works.New to the internet, technical forums, or the hacker / open source community??

I was couldn't find one GUI based hex editor too. Than, decided to make one.
Here is the program you are looking for.
It's open sourced and could open files / disk devices up to exabyte size...
