Update 22/08/01 1:00am CST here is the DOS executable with source code

OK,I have only done so far a program that can do relative searches and exact hex matching so far. the code was done about two years ago for another project and rebuilt to do searches over any number of files and do relative ones. Also was modified to have two types of input... Hex and ASCII, with * standing for any byte/character.

All the source code is included in the tgz file, so you can compile a DOS or Linux version.. maybe even on Windows =) (I will try later to do so if necessary)

SO far instructions are not in the readme due to lack of time... I have a lot of work until this Friday, and most probably will only do a bit of research... but any input is more than welcome.

I will upload a DOS executable by 22/08/2001 1am CST

search [-rap] [files]


-r -> does relative search
-a -> Input is in ASCII, i/e instead of typing byte values, you type the
letters... example: J*U*N*K*E*R => 4a * 55 * 4e * 4b * 45 * 52
-p -> Print the value found.. useful with -r when it is a relative value, not exact

If no options given, will do an exact match per byte search.

for example you can type something like:

search -rap *.BIN

One good thing that you can do is use * to match any byte in that place, this was quite useful to find the text in the PCE version...
