The desired hex display status


The HEX command is used to switch the edit screen between the normal Character only display, to a HEX display which shows the Hex characters representing the normal character in a vertical orientation below the normal character.

In HEX mode, you may alter data either by entering characters on the 'normal' character line as usual, or you may enter any valid HEX characters  (0-9, a-f and A-F)  in the vertical positions below the normal character line.

The value is stored as part of the PROFILE options which are maintained individually by file type.

Note that while in HEX display mode, functions to cut and paste data are not enabled. If you wish to cut and paste data from a file currently displayed in HEX mode, you must set HEX OFF first, then perform the cut or paste operation.
