  • huxdemp: A modernized hexdump, with colorized output, column reordering, and Lua plugins!

    huxdemp does not have: - Content squeezing. This is a neat feature from hexyl that will elide rows of output if it would be the same as the previous row, replacing it with a single asterisk. It might be added to huxdemp later, though. - Octal or binary views. hex is great for that. - Windows support. WSL2 is a thing :P Plus my last experience of trying to get something to be compatible with Windows was particularly traumatic, and since I'm not a masochist, I'm not in a hurry to repeat it.

What are some alternatives?
