            Re: Khexedit
            KHexEdit is a great Hex Editor for KDE 2!

            I had difficulty compiling KHexEdit under Caldera
            Workstation 3.1 (Kernel 2.4.x; KDE 2.1.x; X 4.0.3) .
            The problem appears to be in configure script. After
            using configure with the command line options
            described in the install file, edit the Make file with the
            following command.

            perl -pi -e 's|/opt/kde/|/opt/kde2/|g;' Makefile

            You may need to repeat this for the make file which
            exists in the khexedit directory.

            One awesome beast of a hex editor. The best I ever used. Now the only functionality I want is a calculator functionality. binhexoctdec and an ascii chart
