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.

            i know, i know you shouldn't give yourself the thumbs up.
            but this little program grew out of necessity, and it became a very important tool for my job.
