What do you mean by "text"?

I have the following aliases:

alias calc 'gawk "BEGIN{ print \!* }"'
alias hcalc 'gawk -v CONVFMT="%x\n" "BEGIN{printf CONVFMT, \!* }"'

(I use csh).

Then I can:

$ calc 2+2
$ calc 0x10
$ calc 0x10+2
$ hcalc 16
$ hcalc 2^10
$ hcalc 0xf+0x11




Thanks for the reply. With the text means if a file contains some hex
characters like this then through the command line or script I should
be able to convert the hex values to text.

Important is accepting the file as input and converting all the values
in it to text values

41 65 72 74 3A 20 49 6E 74 65 72 66 61 63 65

the output of the above should be "APRIL FOOL".

Please let me know if you need any further input.

Thanks & Regards
