Convert byte string to hexadecimal

Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. The OO equivalent for the $Lstr_C2X function is the StringToHex function.

This function converts a byte string into its hexadecimal encoding. It is identical to $C2X, except it is longstring capable.

The $Lstr_C2X function accepts one argument and returns a string result which is the hexadecimal encoding of that argument.

The first argument is a longstring.

The returned value is the hexadecimal encoding of the argument string.


%coded = $Lstr_C2X(string)

%coded is set to the hexadecimal encoding of string

Usage notes


The following code would print D985844099A494, which is the hexadecimal representation of the EBCDIC characters "Red rum".

Print $Lstr_C2X('Red rum')
