Hex editor

    May 26 2006 | 3:23 pm
    is there any way using maxMSP objects or any known external to read a file and edit that file like if max was a Hex Editor? Ex: one control would allow us to browse the file by choosing its offset,then we would get the Hex info of the chosen offset, and we could change it and save the file after the change?
    thanks in advance,

      hmmm apparently filein is just what i was looking for, as for reading the file, but there is no fileout... as for the java i don't understand java and i don't know how to use java in max. what i'm trying to get is a realtime hex editor of files in wich i get the info from a file in a certain offset and then i change it's value and save the change. filein as you pointed out is quite handy, but if there is no fileout(for osx, i know there is one for os9) i think i won't get far
