Re: mc Digest, Vol 145, Issue 7

you should tick the "All charsets" and "Case sensitive"
checkboxes first.

 Previously I never succeeded.
With those 2 'ticks', it finds the first matching byte on the display only.

Once the endianism is determined you can use:
->  cat Log | hexdump | grep 2f3a ==
0000130 2f3a 772f 7777 6b2e 6168 616e 6163 6564
0000230 6f65 2073 2040 3835 202e 6966 656c 2f3a

One possibility is to modify MC's source code:

Change the "6L" (six months) to "12L".

Or you can edit the MC binary directly.

That expression (6 * 30 * 24 * 60 * 60) equals 0x00ed4e00. Use MC's
viewer to edit /usr/bin/mc: press <f4> for hex view. Search for "00 4e
ed 00" (assuming little endian). But it turns out MC's hex search has
a bug: you should tick the "All charsets" and "Case sensitive"
checkboxes first.

I did not manage to find the hex string 0x00ed4e00, using any of my hex
editors, so I ended up recompiling mc.

But thanks for the help.

Perhaps, it would make sense to make this option configurable via the
ini file?
Or set 12 months by default, because that makes more logical sense than
6 months.
