Edit Any File Text, EBCDIC, Data, Binary, Hex and More

Edit any size text, data or binary file (even 100GB+) with vEdit Pro64. Standard vEdit supports files up to 2GB. Written in hand-optimized assembly language, VEDIT edits huge files quickly, such as 500+ megabyte files for a CD-ROM or DVD.

vEdit easily handles any type of file you can throw at it, even those with strange control characters, corrupted files, binary files, database files, fixed-width files, and more.

Various display modes show the file in its native format or any one you choose, including ASCII, Hex, Octal, Binary, and EBCDIC.
