I am looking for an application I used in 2001.

It was a curses application that displayed devices or files in hexadecimal format, and allowed searching through them and other functionality.

I can't find anything remotely like this, does anyone have an idea?

Could this be it? http://www.rogoyski.com/adam/programs/hexedit/onlinedoc/hexedit.html

Yes! wow, a blast from the past. It has obviously stopped development, perhaps someone could suggest a replacement tool? – Jack May 6 '10 at 10:31
    
If you want hard drive forensics then try the Backtrack distro. It is a live CD (you don't have to install it, runs right off the CD). backtrack-linux.org Backtrack is probably the best known distrobution for hard drive and other types of forensics. Alternatively if you just need a hex viewer, there are hundreds of them availaible. Just google for one. – Daisetsu May 12 '10 at 16:49

There are many, many forensic tools out there.

There are whole distributions for this, if you can not jog your memory with the list of packages in std-knoppix, then go through some of distributions listed here (with backtrack as highly recommended one).
