Hex Editor - Binary File Editing Software for Windows

Raw Text Format

This data format is used to copy the contents of the text pane of the editor window, “as you see it”. In fact, selected document's data is interpreted as textual data and placed into the Clipboard (or exported) in the given encoding.

The format has a single configurable parameter, Encoding, which can be used to tell Hex Editor Neo how to export document's data.

NOTE: Support for a specific encoding depends on installed Windows code pages and fonts. If required components cannot be found for a selected encoding, resulting output will be empty.

The following table lists all “special” encodings:

EncodingNotes
NoneDocument's data is placed into the Clipboard (or file) “as is”. No processing is performed. Selection is assumed to contain ANSI text.

OEMSelected data is assumed to contain ANSI text in current system OEM encoding. It is converted to UTF-16.

Unicode (UTF-16)Document's data is placed into the Clipboard (or file) "as is". No processing is performed. Selection is assumed to contain UNICODE UTF-16 text.

When selected data is not too complex, it is automatically put into the Clipboard in this format when user executes the Edit » Copy or Edit » Cut and cursor is in the text pane.

All following encodings assume the text to be a single-byte or multi-byte DBCS text and convert it to UTF-16.
