DHEX is a more than just another hex editor: It includes a diff mode, which can be used to easily and conveniently compare two binary files. Since it is based on ncurses and is themeable, it can run on any number of systems and scenarios. With its utilization of search logs, it is possible to track changes in different iterations of files easily. Please send me any themes you made! (please include DHEX in the header)
Or just download some themes from here.
It is known to run on Linux, HP-UX, FreeBSD, NetBSD, MacOS X, IRIX and Solaris

Christof was awesome enough to send me a small bugfix. Apparently, under certain circumstances, opening a file could crash the program. His fix prevents this.

To make working with partial memdumps easier, it is now possible to set a sort of "base address" when loading a file. Thank you Thomas for suggesting this.

Thanks to Atl, this version adds the ability to search for quoted strings, rather than just single words, from the command line. Additionally, thanks to Simon, it is now possible to set the color of the headers from the .dhexrc file.

This version comes with a naive correlator. It could help to match an object-file to the executable and compare it, for example. Moreover, there is a new default theme.
