I could do hexedit.
I downloaded the source package, and was happy to see that you'd
cygported it already. It looks to be pretty rarely updated, which is
nice from a maintainership standpoint.
I have a couple of questions:
1. There doesn't seem to be a mailing list for the project at its home,
which is now http://rigaux.org/ (The cygport file gives an older URL.)
How do you learn about new releases?
I suspect the updated rate is very very low for this time of sources.
(similar to bvi that is taking 10 years from 1.3.2 to 1.4.0 release
2. I built it from the cygport, and the result seems to work, except
that the function keys aren't being interpreted correctly. Is this a
problem in MinTTY, in the terminal protocol I've selected (xterm-color),
or in hexedit? If the latter, I think I'm signing up to release a -2 to
3. Is there a good reason for this to remain in the distro along with
bvi, other than "it's not vi"?
