A downloadable binary file editor for Windows and Linux
Binary files can be a pain to debug.
BEdit is for the programmer who deals with binary file formats, and want a tool that is more powerful than a hex editor, but not a fully fledged customized reader.
You usually have to create custom tools just to dump binary files to a structured ASCII format that you can read and inspect. This tool will help you debug, create and edit binary files in a more structured way than a hex editor.
The goal of this project is for you to be able to write (in a C-like language) types and where in the binary file the type appears. The editor then formats the binary data, allowing you to do type safe edits.
This project is in early phase and is being developed. Current version is alpha 0.2.2.

Performance and stability update as well as a couple of more language features such as alignas and import statements. Also the UI has gotten a minor face-lift and the documentation too.
First Linux build! WARNING I have not distributed Linux builds before, so don't expect everything to run smoothly, also keep in mind BEdit is still in alpha. Linux build is developed and tested on Ubuntu 18.
Support for basic sizeof and compound assignments operators. Also improved keyword hidden to allow usage on non-scalars. And as always, some bug fixes, see GitHub for more details.
