Detect It Easy 0.91

Easy to use Mac OS X application that can scan various files and folders in order to effortlessly determine the type of each item.
Detect It Easy is a Mac utility that enables you to detect the type of certain files by analyzing the included signatures. To make sure it stays relevant, Detect It Easy enables you to add your own detection algorithms by integrating various scripts.

Uncomplicated packet identifier featuring drag and drop support

Working with Detect It Easy is extremely easy because all you have to do in drag and drop the file you want to analyze on top of the app’s main window. The utility is able to analyze MS-DOS, PE, ELF, or MACH executable files. In addition, it can identify text documents and binaries for all files.

Besides the app, the Detect It Easy software package includes the collection of signatures used to identify files, example plug-ins, but also a guide on how to make your own signatures in no time. However, a basic programming knowledge is required to be able to understand how everything works.

Effortlessly analyze files and visualize details about their type

In the Detect It Easy main window, the app will instantly display basic information about the currently scanned file: type, size, entropy, and so on. At the same time, by pressing the “S” button placed in the bottom area of the Detect It Easy main window, you can easily visualize all the signatures currently attached to the file.

Note that you have the option to easily customize the app’s behavior via the Preferences window: you can easily disable the tooltips, choose to see the detected errors or the scan time, adjust the entropy threshold, quickly disable all plug-ins, and so on.

Packet identifier that enables you to add your own file signatures

All in all, Detect It Easy is a fairly easy to use app that enables you to learn more about a file’s type with minimal effort. Noteworthy is that Detect It Easy provides support for implementing your own detection algorithms, even though programming skills are required.
