# Binary to Hexa Conversion

Posted on 2000-05-12

I have a binary data like this
".....!...?...", here each "." symbol is used for different values, ie, "." may return varied value. All the symbols are of same category. How to get the exact values for each character ?

How are you seeing it as ...!? are you doing a printf?  If so do a printf("%2.2X %c\n",data,data); this will show you the data in hex and the char (what I consider to be useless).

I'm not sure what you mean, but I suppose you want the ascii value of the single characters.
If you have

char * s = ".....!...?...";

you can get the single characters' values by using

char singlechar = s[0];

for the first character and so on. "char" is itself a numeric datatype, of course you could use "int" as well.

for each character in u'r string find the ascii value.

int asciicode;
asciicode=(int)character //type casting //of the character into numeric value.

then use the code--

printf("%x",acsiicode);

this will give u the hex value for that particular character. u can find the hex value for rest of the characters by using a loop ending at the lenght of the string..
