I've been trying to view the binary code of some of my programs like simcity for example, however notepad does not give me that option and i tried edit in ms-dos and i wasn't able to get that to work either..any ideas?

Look at the thread about free Text editors, some of those may offer a Hex Edit view.

what language?...i'm a little confused by that..I guess it would be c or c++ but i just want to see the guts of a program (binary)..someone said something bout a hex editor...i'll try that. :)

Yeah. Some text viewers can display all characters if you want the to, but the best solution would be a hex editor. There are many of them, some better than others.
