I'd guess that there is an option in Hex Workshop to update the file mod time. If not, contact the maker of that program. Or, you could consider another hex editor. I, for example, use 010 Editor (http://www.sweetscape.com/010editor/). I find it's binary templates simply amazing for analyzing binary files. I convinced my work to get a site license.

Thanks! That's precisely the problem. Hex workshop doesn't change the last modified time... hence the issue. I can "touch" the files later, but would really rather find a way to enable something in hex workshop or subversion that allows this to happen. I'm really hoping there's someone out there who's encountered and tackled this issue. I mean, the "touching" option is perfectly fine, except... it's not a very neat way of doing business, what if you forget to touch the file? etc etc. Cuz, then you have a changed binary file that isn't showing up as modified!

Regards,
Ahmed

Does Hex Workshop leave the "last modified" date unchanged? If so, you
might need to "touch" the file so that Subversion knows to do a
byte-by-byte comparison.
