Linux List is an open source clone of Vernon D. Buerg's fine DOS-based List file viewer.
It is still fairly early in development, but is already useful (particularly as a hex editor.)
- Displays full 8-bit CP437 glyphs (UTF8 console required), so that binary files look like they did under DOS.
- Byte size is not limited to 8-bits. Viewing data as nine-bits per "byte" helps considerably when examining LZW-compressed data. Both big and little endian splitting is supported.
- Hex view supports hex editing (via byte values and direct text entry)
The first release is coming soon, but for the adventurous the code is available on GitHub.
- Normal text view:
- Hex view with control characters visible:
- Viewing LZW compressed data in 9-bits per byte - also note data is being edited:
