Back in the 80s, coders developed their skills looking at the hex format of code written by other developers. Some users would regard this as 'hacking', but delving in to the hex code enabled coders to make low-level changes. This art seems to have disappeared somewhat and there are few advanced-level hex and similar editors. Hex editors also enable you to examine corrupt data, compare code and much more.
WinHex 13.9 is a popular hex editor aimed squarely at advanced users and developers who know how to edit low-level code to manipulate, extract and salvage data from code, discs, your system memory and other locations.
