This is a very simple but useful application for viewing the sequence of bytes or bits in a binary file. I have modified my old bytes viewer and added the option to view the sequence of bits as well.
You can choose the start and end index of the bytes / bits being viewed.
This is how the application looks:
The application also supports dragging and dropping files into the form.
You can use it together with Fiddler by selecting a session and then choosing for example File - Save - Request - Request Body.... Then open it with the bytes viewer to view the sequence of bits and not only bytes as it is in HexView of Fiddler.
And the executable (requires .NET 2.0 installed):www.bodurov.com/BytesViewer/BytesViewerExecutable.zip

Thanks for that gem! I use your programm at university to demonstrate the difference of single-byte and multi-byte encodings. Never saw anything so convenient for that task before. Keep up the good work!

Hey Vlad! Great utility program. I was in the process of understanding a file format by looking at the bytes of a sample file and looked for something quick. This is the page popped up in google. It was an honor working with you.

I've been trying to teach myself how to program and am recently exploring the world of binary files. An application like this is helpful for someone like me, especially the drag/drop option. It lends a hand in the trial and error process I'm constantly engaged. If course there are more errors than triumphs at the moment, but I'm sure I will get the hang of it.
I'm wondering if there are any alternatives to Fiddler you'd recommend?

I´ve just download Bytes Viewer, thanks a lot: I have been looking for this program for a long time. It has not only Bytes/Hex viewer, but also bits.
I am a computer teacher and bits/bytes meaning is one of the most difficult things to teach my pupils.
