HexX : Hex editor

As any seasoned Vim user knows, Vim does not support editing of binary files in any meaningful way; it's not Vim's fault - it was never designed for that

HexX hopes to plug that gap. It provides a working and useful hex editing environment. Because of the way it works, it does not support the huge range of normal Vim editing features, but it does provide the basics plus some surprise-and-delight features as well

Be sure to fully read the README file before using this - there is a lot of useful information in it that should answer any questions you may have. There is also the usual 'help' file too but this deliberately only provides (mostly) commnd and mapping information

NOTE: I really have no idea what the minimum vim version requirement is to run HexX and I don't know of a practical way of finding out. The best I can suggest is to try it; it will probably work and if it doesn't then let me know and I'll see if I can sort it

*** I would really value any feedback on this plugin. If you have any suggestions for improving this, then please let me know. If you think it's rubbish then PLEASE let me know why - it's far more useful than just 'voting it down' (which really doesn't help at all). Contact details are in the top of the README file ***
install details
Just un-tar into ~/.vim/bundle/ as usual and read the README file for config options
