What is good is that CudaText has text/raw/hex viewer - from the Universal Viewer app. For files which cannot be edited [huge files]. It can viewer, like Universal Viewer, files of any size, e.g. 4Gb. But not edit, only view.

Nice tool. Should accept copy&pasted JSON-Data too.
Would be even better, if it could produce JSON classes for C#, VB.NET from the JSON data.

jamesmalvi on 2014-11-27 08:29

I would suggest to use online json viewer http://codebeautify.org/jsonviewer

There is also UTF-8 branch - http://tomeko.net/software/JSONedit/testing.php

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_(software_framework)! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].

Maybe mention in props, that alternative is CudaText.

I realise that this is a very old thread but the update info shows v3.0.8 was released on 1st Feb 2018. I've just tested Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe, i.e. the 64-bit portable exe of v3.0.8. I used a 2-line BAT:

echo This is a test
pause

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5ac7112fae2a252a5faa72199587cea903d97194cea45934df4fd1fecc326af3/analysis/1518532866/) and thought I would share this. Whilst I was expecting a few false positives (especially from less well-known AV products), 21 red flags out of 66 seems high. Does anyone have any recommendations for a different product? I'm retired and rarely need this so hoping for both freeware and portable.

webfork on 2018-02-13 22:15

RickC: You're right to look at high VirusTotal ratios as you did, but I have tested this program many times over the years without issue. As noted earlier in the comments, programs like this will always show up on scanners.

Interesting enough - when you visit the homepage and try to download the program, the button doesn't work, it's kind of greyed out (observation as of today, 21. Feb. 2018). Disabling all blockers doesn't help. The direct download link in this entry works however.
