X (String function)
Hex constant method (String class)
X is an intrinsic function that returns the unencoded value of a hex-encoded string. It is a compile-time-only equivalent of HexToString. Since, in use, it acts like a hex constant, it is also documented with the "Constant methods".
X treats each input character as an input hex digit.
%outString = string:X
|%outString||A string variable to receive the unencoded value of the method object string.|
|string||A hex-encoded string value.|
- As in all Janus SOAP system methods with string outputs, the output %outString variable provides longstring behavior. However, this adds 28 bytes of VTBL usage to every X constant.
- Although its utility is dubious, the following is valid and sets
%x = 'f0f1':x:x
- X requires a method object string with an even number of bytes.
- X is available as of Sirius Mods Version 7.3.
