* Program Information *
This aplication helps you to visualize WADs constructed for DooM, DooM ][, Heretic and HeXen.
There are some ways how you can use the program,
In the DOS Mode:
Usage: (for example)
c:\wadhex>wadhex myfile.wad - will display all the hexadecimal content of this file
c:\wadhex>wadhex myfile.wad |more - will display all the hexadecimal content page by page
c:\wadhex>wadhex myfile.wad > prn - will send all the hexadecimal content to printer
In the Windows Mode:
Usage: (for example)
Using the Explorer you can also drag any WAD file and put it over the executable file of
WADHex... it is that simple to make the program works on your selected file.
I have also included some batch files that can help, to make the usage of this utility faster.
Please note that batch files should be executed in the DOS mode for best results.
* Construction *
Base : From scratch.
I built part of this application when I was a student.
Some changes were done to make it works fine and safe.

Extra Comments : You can invoke the program from within DOS directly or using

I think will be case of the majority of users)
