Probably more than once
a power-user wishes to have a little tool that allows her/him to get only some
special parts of a file for further processing.
Binary file (or hex) editors
are a great help for experienced users, but most of these don't allow you to
mark or even save a block of bytes to another file. This is where X jumps in!
Q: So how does it work?
A: Start your favourite
hex editor. Load the desired file. Look for information you want to be extracted.
Write down the starting and ending offsets of the information. Now feed X with
input filename, output filename, starting offset, and length (ending-starting
offset). That's it!
