Search and replace in binary files


Is the file readonly? Later that night I got it to work by having the first file open and the prompt to Replace ALL etc came up. What else would you expect? DOC is proprietary binary format consisting from stored objects. It is the same as if you do it in the executable. Others are intolerant of even single byte changes of the same length. Actually it worked quite well, as long as the length was the same. But yes, it made me nervous. OTOH, the wildcard multi-file search capabilites allowed me to verify results of the other products.

My whole point and need. I did find other solutions that work and make me less nervous. DOC is proprietary binary format consisting from stored objects.
