    Advanced binary diff tools?

    Hey guys. I am relatively new to the cracking scene. I have only done simple NOOP patches for basic software using W32DASM, but now I am working on cracking my first few apps for the PocketPC. I was wondering if any of you guys know of a nice binary differencing tool? I mean, something that will show me "blocks" of bytes that are equal/not equal between two different files. I have purchased and installed Insaniquarium 1.09 for PPC/ARM and also downloaded a pre-cracked executable (same version) for comparison. Any ideas on some diff tools?

    Thanks,
    Netsniper

    I use wincommander (now totalcommander), it has nice compare function.
    Never needed anything else.

    Thanks for replies. I didn't know Total Commander had diff capabilities. It's a great app, so I'll be using it more frequently now. I downloaded a newer demo of HexWorkshop as well. I have used it before (long time ago) as a simple hex editor, but I'll try it again for the diff features. Thanks again...

    There's also a nice dos executable called "fc.exe". Use it like this: fc /b file1 file2.

    Yes!!! DOS program is the best, can't believe I never saw this before. Thanks...

    Try Beyond Compare with HexView Plugin. I think it's the best to compare hex and ascii files.
