Hi all,

Can anyone asap tell me how to increment a hexadecimal value by one.
In decimal it is e.g. x=x+1 but how do I do it in hex?

For example I have:                             $hex_value = "\xC0";
Can I do something along the lines of:   $hex_value = $hex_value + "\x01";     ????????
 will that give me:                                $hex_value = "\xC1";                       ????????????

Many thanks,

don't over complicate the problem.

$counter=12; // decimal
// you see by setting it to ="\xC0" you made it a string type, not an integer

// if you really want you could set it as
$counter=0xC0;

$counter++;

echo (dechex($counter));

Do you really care about the base of the counter?
