Convert an Ebcdic string to hexadecimal (String class)


The StringToHex intrinsic function returns the hex encoded value of the method object string.

Syntax

%outString = string:StringToHex

Syntax terms

%outString A string variable to receive the hex encoded value of the method object string.
string The string to be hex encoded.

Usage notes

  • Hex (short for hexadecimal) encoding is usually used for debugging when there is a concern that non-displayable characters (including trailing blanks) might be present in a string. By hex encoding such a string, all non-displayable bytes are converted to displayable hexadecimal equivalents.
  • StringToHex always returns an even number of bytes.
  • StringToHex is available as of Sirius Mods Version 7.2.

Examples
