'Shed' is a hex editor written for unix/linux using ncurses. It can display each byte as ascii, hex, decimal, octal and binary; changes can be input in all of the above. It has a simple Pico-style interface. The package's memory requirements are mall because files are not loaded into memory (when you edit a file, changes is made directly to disk. The authors urges that you backup your files first). It handles files up to 4Gb.
