    He's on Windows. I'd be surprised if Notepad++ didn't have a hex mode, but one could always use Perl.

    perl -nE"BEGIN { $/=\16 } say uc unpack 'H*', $_" file

      On Windows with paths like /www and /var? I assumed he was viewing files in Notepad++ via Samba and still had terminal access (like me).

      Notepad++ has a hex plugin.

        doh! Of course he isn't. Nevermind X_X
