Developer Tools - File Inspector|
In addition to your programming language, what do you need to be a successful programmer?
One part of the answer is the right set of tools, including many not provided
as a part of the language distribution. The old saying "It's a poor carpenter who blames his tools!"
may be true, but having good tools definitely gives a good programmer a head start.
I've really come to depend on one tool,
FileSnoop, from PC
Magazine to let me inspect the inside of a file, regardless of the type of file.
Of all the great utilities, this is the one that I use almost every day.
It integrates with Explorer, so you can simply right click on a file to
access any of the following capabilities:
- File information (attributes, version, author)
- Hex view
- Native viewing (text, doc, graphics)
- View internal resources (icons, bitmaps)
- Imports (files) and Exports (functions)
