wxHexEditor not build for just opening standard files.
It could open:
- Standard files
- Devices, like HDD, SSD, USB Flash
- Program Memory
wxHexEditor is indeed a Disk Editor same time and could open disk/block devices for editing, inspecting them without any problem under all supported ( Linux, Windows and MacOSX ) OSes.
After wxHexEditor v0.23 Development version, using wxWidgets 3.0 library, the program supports file change detections. If some other source changes the file, wxHexEditor update the screen and shows the changes immediately.
But it cannot open physical RAM due modern OSes does not allow such an operation due safety concerns...
