they allow you to view the code in the software and make changes.

you need to be able to understand gobbletygook though to put them to much use though.

popular one is ultraedit click here used by many to hack the bios of graphics cards :-)

Is it tech Iligal though?

no not illegal at all.

I'm sure in the wrong hands they could be used for illegal purposes though.
