Microsoft OffVis, Office Visualization Tool:

"When you load any Microsoft Office binary file into the Visualizer, you are presented with two panes. The navigation pane shows the raw file contents, with each row showing current offset, a chain of hexadecimal numbers, and their text representation if any. The results pane shows the parsing results that consist of the name of the current data structure, its value, offset location, size, and type."

@Y0Gi - try swiftfox. Unfortunately the downloads page is pretty haphazard but different packages can be found on the odd ftp here and there. I've got the x86 and 64 debs floating around if you get stuck.

I recently spent a bit of time looking at all the options for iOS dev (on mac). There's actually a *lot* of good tools out there now. However, as I've looked, I've been keeping in mind how much actual benefit I'd get, whether it's actually better than what I'm already using, and how much time I'd waste on config/learning.

End result: I've picked up a couple of very simple utilities, nothing else. Stuff I now use:

- xcode plus instruments
- quartz composer (part of apple's graphics dev package, it's very good for profiling shaders - recompiles as you type, you can add LFOs, sliders etc. to control inputs easily)
- Quick Radar (sits in the menu bar, super quick way to file bug reports)
- Watchdog (literally just cleans up after Xcode, i'm sure it's fixed some issues before I noticed them :)
- Sticky Notifications (basically just lets you leave a note for yourself, but the note appears as a notification so it's instantly dismissible)
