Thanks for the links.. I will keep this question open for a couple of days...

Hi venkateshwarr,

Here are some links to a few others.

the free HexEdit, which was mentioned in the MacWorld magazines January 2005 Edition on page 88.

These are two links that I found as well.

you can get to others off of the first link, and you can get others from there including ResFool that clausbroch mentioned.  They all appear to be free.  I can not say anything about any of them, except the HexEdit.  However, to use them make sure you know what you are doing as they can cause programs to cease working if edited incorrectly.
