SearchBin is a fast commandline program for searching within binary files. It's a bit like grep for binaries. It offers wildcard matching and has three capabilities for searching: for bytes using hexidecimal, for a plain text string, and for a smaller binary file. Any discovered matches will print the found offsets (0-based).
Unbelievable, I just spotted your email address on the page. I guess what I should have asked is to have it placed near the very top or bottom of the page so it can readily be seen. Cheers!
I really like safecopy. When copying optical discs it is NOT like dd_rescue at all, because it actually works (instead of failing on I/O errors). I have a request though. Could you please, please, please put an email or some contact on the safecopy webpage.
I spent an hour looking over the page and through all your source code trying to find a way to contact you.
