Converting guid as a null-termintated string binary to hex

Hi All,

I have a GUID : 373D06E9-587E-4930-B846-12500FF1AC2F which needs to be converted into hexadecimal using Cocoa or objective C.



Can some one please let me know how to do that.

Thanks,
Ravi

GUID is 128-bit value displayed as 32 hexadecimal digits.
I hope this example will help you:
        NSString *source = @"373D06E9-587E-4930-B846-12500FF1AC2F";
        NSString *line = [source stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"-" withString:@""];
        NSUInteger length = [line length];
        
        NSUInteger cnt = 0;
        unichar symbols[2];
        while ( cnt < length ) {
            symbols[0] = [line characterAtIndex:cnt];
            symbols[1] = [line characterAtIndex:cnt + 1];
            NSString *one = [NSString stringWithCharacters:symbols length:2];
            
            NSScanner *scanner = [NSScanner scannerWithString:one];
            unsigned hexNum;
            [scanner scanHexInt:&hexNum];
            
            NSLog(@"0x%@ %i", one, hexNum);
            
            cnt += 2;
        }
