Convert String of Digits to Hexadecimal
CodeWright® - API Macro - Royalty Free -
Convert String of Digits to Hexadecimal.
This function is an augmentation of NumsToHex that attempts to correct these limitation.
Starbase distributes the the API macro NumsToHex with each copy of CodeWright. This function is quite interesting and can be helpful when converting from decimal to hexadecimal.
Unfortunately NumsToHex does not check for either overflow or underflow conditions. Consequently, the results of the conversions can be incorrect. This being the case, it would seem foolhardy to rely on NumsToHex for any conversion.
tlaStrToHex leverages the code in NumsToHex and validates the results. All underflow conditions are eliminated and all overflow conditions are identified. A comparison of the two functions is:
This function calls tlaError.
