HEX$

Syntax

HEX$ (decimal,nibbles) or

HEX$ (decimal [,nibbles]) (THOR only)

Location Toolkit II, THOR XVI

This function converts a signed integer decimal number to the equivalent hexadecimal number to a specified number of nibbles (ranging from 1 to 32 - there are 4 nibbles in one digit). If nibbles is not divisible by four, it is rounded up to the next multiple of four. Negative values are also handled correctly provided that nibbles is set to 32. The range of decimal is -2^31<decimal<2^31

Examples

HEX (HEX$ (x,4))

Will = x if x is any number between 0 and 15.

PRINT HEX$ (300,10)

will return the value 12C.

PRINT HEX$ (300,8)

will return the value 2C.

THOR XVI NOTE

The THOR XVI version of this command will accept a value of zero for nibbles {or even the command in the form HEX$(decimal)}. In both of these cases the result is returned in the least number of Hexadecimal digits necessary to store the number, for example:

PRINT HEX$(32)

gives the result 20.

THOR XVI WARNING

A second parameter of zero may crash some versions of this command except on v6.41 of the THOR XVI.
