Well, -this- would have been nice to have yesterday! (I was tracking down problem control characters on a BBS login screen)

Curses-based hex editor.
Seems to be installable from most default repos.

@paradroyd xxd, while not an editor, is your friend on the Linux command line. It lets you view the file in hex.

@robdaemon I was just using hexdump -x to view, but now that you mentioned it (and that I've tried it), I do like the xxd output better. Plus, I didn't know that it was also already installed by default.

@paradroyd vim can be a hex editor too (there’s a command to shift it into hex mode) but I never much liked it.
