2.1.2 Data Types

The Hex Edit mode allows to view and edit binary data as integer or floating point words.

Word width can be configured as 8, 16, 24, 32, 64-bit integer, or 32 and 64-bit floating point. Integer types are always displayed as hex-tuples, floating point values are displayed in scientific notation (mE+x). For a word width larger than 8-bit, byteorder can be configured as little endian or big endian.

The following table illustrates the data types and how they are commonly refered to:
