Hex Fiend now open source!!!

Ridiculous Fish (Peter Ammon) has released Hex Fiend as open source (truly open — BSD style license).

Hex Fiend is an absolutely brilliant hex editor. Beyond being a brilliant hex editor, it is a really really well implemented piece of software. Damned fast. Scales beyond the capabilities of the machine. Works really well and behaves consistently.

Anyone who claims Cocoa is slow needs to use Hex Fiend; it screams.

Even if you have no need of a Hex Editor, I highly recommend checking out the source for the learning experience.

svn co http://ridiculousfish.com/svn/HexFiend/trunk/ hexfiend

There is also an awesome Wiki describing the implementation of HexFiend.
