"General Edit is robust and incorporates many clever user-interface innovations...can help developers get their jobs done quickly...a valuable contribution to the Mac developer tool arsenal..." - JJL

As a programmer who deals with file I/O on a daily basis, debugging and editing file structures is crucial to my success. Hence, using your program facilitated my work greatly.... Good job guys!! ... the interface is quite organized and easy to understand. All of the data is visible and easy to play with. I especially like how you can manipulate the structures and edit them on the fly. - DC
