Hello,
I made the following code:
///////
#define HPRINT2(temp) {printf("\n");\
for (int i=0;i<strlen((const char *)temp);i++)\
{printf("%02x",(temp[i]));}printf("\n");}
////////
      char * clchal="ffffff0011223344";
      char * chal="0123456789abcdef";
      char tem4[100]={0x00};
      strcat(tem4,chal);
      char * chcode=strcat(tem4,clchal);//->0123456789abcdefffffff0011223344
      printf(chcode);//until here it's correct.

      char texta[33]={0x00};//2*2*8+1 (zero-termination)
       for (i=0;i<32;++i) {sscanf(&chcode[i*2],"%02x",&texta[i]);}
      printf("\n");
      HPRINT2(texta);//->01234567ffffff89ffffffabffffffcdffffffefffffffffffffffffffffffff
////////

I really can't see what is not correct, since I tried the sscanf-part before in a simple demo program, and there it worked fine....

Any help is really appreciated.

You seem to be getting sign-extension on all the bytes that have the high bit set (89, ab, cd, ef ).

You might try saying "unsigned char" in front  of "temp[i]" in your printf().

Thanks, it seems better now,
however, it displays
0123456789abcdefffffff0011223344//->should be
0123456789abcdefffffff//->what is printed by HPRINT2
I Think that it reads the 0x00 as a "stop" (though not sure...).... Is there any way to avoid this??

Thanks

You can't do a strlen() on texta, it's not a string at all.  

You have to find some other way of passing the length.

I did this simple prog to test your code :


#include <strings.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#define HPRINT2(temp) {printf("\n");\
for (int i=0;i<strlen((const char *)temp);i++)\
{printf("%02x",(temp[i]));}printf("\n");}
////////
int main(){
     char * clchal="ffffff0011223344";
     char * chal="0123456789abcdef";
     char tem4[100]={0x00};
     strcat(tem4,chal);
     char * chcode=strcat(tem4,clchal);//->0123456789abcdefffffff0011223344
     printf(chcode);//until here it's correct.

     char texta[33]={0x00};//2*2*8+1 (zero-termination)
      for (int i=0;i<32;++i) {sscanf(&chcode[i*2],"%02x",&texta[i]);}
     printf("\n");
     HPRINT2(texta);//->01234567ffffff89ffffffabffffffcdffffffefffffffffffffffffffffffff
     return 0;
}


It outputs
>a.out
0123456789abcdefffffff0011223344

01234567ffffff89ffffffabffffffcdffffffefffffffffffffffffffffffff

----------------end
What is wrong?
