Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171685
Somewhat misleading description
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:10:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The description of the hexedit package says one can "view and edit hexadecimal
or ASCII files". There is no such thing as an "hexadecimal" file, but a newbie
could possibly be be confused by the wording. I would suggest something like
"allows viewing and editing files in hexadecimal and ASCII" or so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yes, that really a nonsense. I changed that to:
Hexedit shows a file both in ASCII and in hexadecimal. The file can be a device as
the file is read a piece at a time. Hexedit can be used to modify the file
and search through it.
