Re: command or script for converting hex values to text

hey,

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.

Ankush,

Unless I'm mistaken, you want to convert a string of hex
values represented in ASCII into its corresponding ASCII
string.

This should do just that:
$ echo "41 50 52 49 4C 20 46 4f 4f 4c 0a"| xxd -r -p
APRIL FOOL

However, this does NOT result in the text "APRIL FOOL"
on your specified input string of:
"41 65 72 74 3A 20 49 6E 74 65 72 66 61 63 65"

In order to convert your string, we'll need to figure out its
encoding format.

Best regards,
Khoa Ton
