hexyl is a simple hex viewer for the terminal. It uses a colored output to distinguish different categories of bytes (NULL bytes, printable ASCII characters, ASCII whitespace characters, other ASCII characters and non-ASCII).
On Debian-based systems
wget "https://github.com/sharkdp/hexyl/releases/download/v0.4.0/hexyl_0.4.0_amd64.deb" sudo dpkg -i hexyl_0.4.0_amd64.deb
On Arch Linux
You can install
hexyl from this AUR package:
yay -S hexyl
brew install hexyl
pkg install hexyl
nix-env -i hexyl
On other distributions
Check out the release page for binary builds.
For now, you will have to install from source via
cargo (see below). Make sure that you use a terminal that supports ANSI escape sequences (like PowerShell on Windows 10).
If you have Rust 1.30 or higher, you can install
hexyl from source via
