It is necessary to disassemble a binary file of non-trivial structure. The full manual on the device file I have, remained only to choose a good Tulsa. OS preferably Win, but will suit any.

You need a Hex editor which can during editing to highlight certain patterns and offset. The difficulty is often found in structures such as 2 bytes, of which 10 bits — naming markers, 6 — mark option. Ie you need to highlight these bit combinations of the size from the nibble to a few bytes.

Tried a plugin to notepad++, Hex Editor Neo, just a handful. Of free with hiliting nothing found. Hex Editor Neo patterns only in multiples of bytes. In Ubuntu the installer for all hex looked nothing hiliting does not know how.
UPD: Unicode support in string representation is very useful

There are more 010 Editor, unfortunately, paid, but it seems like custom-tailored to the analysis of structures. Until I myself have not tried it (hands did not reach), so I can't say anything.

Not to suffer with search for Wikipedia.org is a huge comparison table of a large number of HEX-editor s. Based on it, the most feature-rich editor "HHD Software Hex Editor Neo".

It all depends on the task. 010Editor, for example, are ideal for analyzing alien formats — at the expense of sensible scripts and templates (the rest of the smoke aside). WinHEX versatile and quite functional. Hiew simpatichen, light and positive + disasm.

For your task 010Editor by far, believe me.
