dhex_markers — marker file for dhex

Description

Bookmarks for dhex(1) are stored in marker files. This manpage describes the format of those marker files.

Example

A typical marker file looks like this:
#DHEX MARKERS
#VERSION 0
#lines are all in hex
#relative positions are =, +, -
=0000000000000000
=0000000000001000
=0000000000002000
+0000000000001000
+0000000000002000
-0000000000001000
-0000000000002000
=00000005334ffeba
=00000000DEADBEEF
+000000000000BABE

Options

In the example above, the file has two sections: A comment section, and a bookmark section.

Comments

Comments are indicated with a '#' character. Everything afterwards in a line is being ignored when parsing the file

Bookmark section

Bookmarks can be either absolute or relative. Lines with absolute bookmarks are starting with '=', the relative ones with '+' or '-'. The value is a 64 bit hexadecimal one.

There should always be 10 bookmarks per file.
