Parsing hex values from an xml file
Posted on 2012-03-30
I am converting a software application from reading and parsing a standard ASCII text file containing operational parameters to an input file in XML format. One of the parameters needs to be a sequence of bytes. Each byte can have a value from 0x00 to 0xFF. So a sample line from the XML file might then be:
<value>0x34 0x3 0x08 0xf2 0xD7 0X39</value>
Note that I purposely presented variations in the format of how a user might populate this field. What is the best way to convert that string into an array of bytes with these values?
