Something like a Hex Editor.

Recommended Posts


Good Night all,

I'm currently working on a special program that reads a file, converts it to Hex, then looks for a specified string.

That string is the following:

00 ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? 00
(simplified: 00, 40x?, 00)
(? = Wild card)

However '??' can't be 00 (but it's able to be for example A0, just double 0 isn't allowed [Except the frame].)

Currently I've made this:

#Include <String.au3>
$File = FileOpenDialog("Choose a File", @ScriptDir, "All (*.*)", 1)
$Opened = FileOpen($File, 0)
$Data = FileRead($Opened)
$Hexed = _StringToHex($Data)

Any Idea how can I look for strings?

Time for you to enter the murky world of Regular Expressions! ;)

Read the StringRegExp page and the <Tutorials - String Regular Expression> tutorial in the Help file to see if any of it makes sense. Come back when you are thoroughly confused and we will see if we can do something to clarify your thoughts. :)

Hmm, I had a look at this StringRegExp, it doesn't look confusing, just hard to do what I want. Too special string :S I'll think a bit more If I can find any method However thanks all your help.

It's quite nice, that would be great If I could even filter thoose array which contains double 0 (except the frame). I think I will try to do it :)
