Complex Data Types

The data fields feature and the Edit Selected command provide an easy and convenient way to edit binary data as typed values. However, sometimes it is not enough. Some data are organized in higher level composite structures, and in other cases you need to go below the byte level to analyze the content of a bit field.

For the sake of simplicity we often refer to composite data as structures, although FlexHEX also supports other complex data types: structures, unions, bit structures, arrays, strings, and enumerations.
