Developer's description:FileAlyzer is a tool to analyze files - the name itself was initially just a typo of FileAnalyzer, but after a few days I decided to keep it. FileAlyzer allows a basic analysis of files (showing file properties and file contents in hex dump form) and is able to interpret common file contents like resources structures (like text, graphics, HTML, media and PE).
# General - The initial information FileAlyzer will show is not much different from what the Windows Properties dialog will show you: file name and location, size, date & times, version and attributes. In addition to those, FileAlyzer will show you both the CRC-32 and the Message Digest 5 checksum of the file, too.
# Version - Another important feature that the Windows Properties dialog shows is also implemented in FileAlyzer: for executable files and system libraries, it shows the Version resources if available.
# Resources - Many executable files have so-called resources - bitmaps, icons and text they use, as well as menus, dialogs and whole windows are usually defined in resources. If you don't know what the purpose of a file is, having a look at its text (see screenshot) or bitmaps may give you an idea.
# PE Header - PE stands for Portable Executable and is a description for the structure of modern Windows (and other platform) files. Nearly all executables and system libraries follow this structure. FileAlyzer can display an insight into this structure on its PE Header tab, showing everything from the target platform to addresses of specific parts of the file.
# Sections - A modern PE file makes clear differences between code (those bytes representing instructions the program will execute), data, resources and other important parts. The Sections tab in FileAlyzer will display the sections contained in the file you analyze. If you want to see the contents of a specific section, just double-click it and FileAlyzer will jump to the beginning of that section on the Hexdump tab.
