Hex String Manipulation in Java
Posted on 1997-04-30
I have this problem:
I wish to take a string from the user. It represents the Pysical Address in Hex (say Mac address).
To pass this on to an SNMP agent, I need to send it as type STRING of 6 OCTETS. So if the user inputs an address in hex as: "aa bb cc dd ee ff", How do I
pack this correctly into 6 OCTETS correctly so as to be interpreted as a PhyAddress by the SNMP agent?
PS: I am using JDK 1.0.2 and have been unable to find a suitable method to do this...
