A utility to compare binary files, where differences are represented visually. A handy tool for reverse-engineering. I have fixed few bugs here.

Small but crucial fixes

Hexcompare is a tool for comparing binary files visually at once. That means, the user can view the map of changes in entire file and choose the part of it to view its contents. It seemed like an ideal tool for my task, but it later turned out, it contains some bugs causing improper differences detection.

I've fixed all bugs or problems I found and its original author released all these fixes as a 1.0.3 version. I also prepared a linux package for it in my OBS repository, since no distribution shipped it.
