Floppy disk Adf Sector editor under Windows

Hi !

I don't know if this tool already exist

I would like to see/edit the contens of adf file (in Hexa/texte) under windows
But, I would like to navigate on this adf file as I were in deksid on Amiga.

So :
- Load a ADF file
- See the content in hexa/text (like any hexa editeur)
- And navigate in this adf file with Cylinder, sector and Size

Maybe it's already exist ?!

I made a browser based version of such a tool some time ago to quickly inspect an ADF and extract some files:

http://stef.be/adfviewer/

Just drop your adf on the page and you're good to go.
Let me know if you're missing some features.

It doesn't write to Adf. Read only.

Thks but... It's Not m'y question
I also use hxd under Windows but as you say, no navigation in 'cylinder', sector, side.
It's just.... An hexa editor Like Others.

Your adf viewer is good but I would Like a standalone application.
I can also code à Web-interface to 'surf' in à adf but, Not the goal.
It's will already browser used.

So, it's Not exist?
Because it's a bit boring to start winuae and use a deksid just to navigat in adf.

Well, I think too.

Maybe it's a good projet for learning Gui on C with windows, never do this.
maybe another language is better ?

I'm not an expert of programming languages to know what particular language is preferable for a certain project

The last i learned was C, made some standard exercises and just a little of "serious" development (no GUI at all)

I found it not so amazing, sincerely

It's probably powerful, but i will not call it user-friendly

I guess to make a Windows application there are better options than C

why not use an Amiga Tool for that ? adf is a amiga disk image
try Disk X for example (block/track/sector/head in hex/ascii
http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/DiskX

for Windows, I only know an old tool by Alpha One : ADF Magic
you can view hex/ascii/disassemble/text
but not select track/sector/head, only hex offset

Sure, a 2 window view à la Directory Opus is still on the TODO list.
Up to now I was too lazy to figure out the checksum calculations needed for writing to a sector :-)

The closest thing I can think of is TSXBIN, a Japanese hex editor. It has a C-like template language for file types and even comes with one such template for editing D88 disk images. Making an ADF template should be much simpler than the D88 template.

The goal is Not to editing adf, it's surf in the adf with cylinder sector, Head button.
Editing adf already exist and we can do it with some software.

I find à hexa source with gui, I will going to see that.
