>Convert to Hex in VIM

>Just recently, I realized my favorite Open Source Editor (OSE), VIM, has a built-in “hex editor”. Well, it is not really a Hex editor, but rather a conversion option. I realized this while playing with the pull-down menus in VIM for windows.

While in VIM issuing the following will convert the current screen to hex:

$> %!xxd

To convert back do:

$> %!xxd -r

I thought this was pretty neat!
