HEX to Text
Hexadecimal to text conversion is the process of converting a hexadecimal representation of text, which is a sequence of hexadecimal characters, to its equivalent text form.
To convert hexadecimal to text, you can use the following method:
- Convert the hexadecimal representation to its decimal form.
- Convert the decimal form of the hexadecimal representation to their ASCII codes.
- Convert the ASCII codes to text.
For example, to convert the hexadecimal representation "48656C6C6F" to the text "Hello," "48" -> "72" (decimal) -> "H" (ASCII); "65" -> "101" (decimal) -> "e" (ASCII). "6C" -> 108 (decimal) -> "l" (ASCII) "6C" -> 108 (decimal) -> "l" (ASCII) "6F" -> 111 (decimal) -> "o" (ASCII)
A more simple way to convert hexadecimal to text is to use the built-in bytes.fromhex() function in python which converts the hexadecimal string to its corresponding bytes object and then decode() function which converts the bytes object to text or by using any web conversion tool like Oumify.
Note that this method of conversion will only work for ASCII characters. If the hexadecimal representation contains non-ASCII characters, the conversion will not be accurate.
Also, keep in mind that hexadecimal representation uses the digits 0–9 and letters A–F to represent numbers 10–15, respectively, and text representation uses a combination of
