Wanted: Gtk/Gnome-based hex-edit widget

Post by Chris Kotche » Fri, 25 Aug 2000 04:00:00

I'm in need of having some sort of hex-editing widget in an application I'm
writing.  something similar to a simple editing control, but works as a hex
editor on a given byte array of a given length.

Does anybody know of or have such a control?  Or some other similar widget
that I could plug into an existing application?


1. GTK Widget, Bonobo/CORBA app, or Emacs handles suitable for C source code editing?

How about some alternative thoughts:

- Have your program create the C file as a temporary file in /tmp, and
  then invoke whatever editor is specified by the EDITOR variable.

  That means that the user can configure whatever editor they prefer
  to use, and you don't need to worry about whether it embeds to a
  GNOME app.

- Looking in ~/.gnome/editor, I see:


This appears to indicate that there's _something_ in Gnome that allows
you to request that an editor be invoked with somewhat greater
sophistication than is offered by $EDITOR or $VISUAL.

I am not certain precisely how you make use of this faculty; I don't
see any faintly relevant IDL in /usr/share/idl.

But both of these routes seem to me to be a whole lot less stressful
than the option of trying to integrate an editor into an application.
