Hexyl- A Command-line Hex Viewer

Hexyl- A Command-line Hex Viewer

hexyl is a simple hex viewer for the terminal. It uses a colored output to distinguish different categories of bytes (NULL bytes, printable ASCII characters, ASCII whitespace characters, other ASCII characters and non-ASCII).


On Debian-based systems
wget ""
sudo dpkg -i hexyl_0.4.0_amd64.deb

On Arch Linux
You can install hexyl from this AUR package:

yay -S hexyl

On macOS
brew install hexyl

On FreeBSD
pkg install hexyl

Via Nix
nix-env -i hexyl

On other distributions
Check out the release page for binary builds.
