hye guys, i have a .txt file which contain hex value such as F5/01/00/01/00/03/00/F5 (03 nad 01 appear as boxes in text file), and i wanted to take this value into php and convert it into binary. is it possible?
Is the string actually the hex string?
My first question, is why store it in this format? Store the binary and safe a lot of work/effort?
it actually an output from a device,i just transfer it to a file.
Have you tried:
$binary = hex2bin(file_get_contents('file.txt));
$binary = pack('H*' , file_get_contents('file.txt));
tried already…but still can’t…i use this code below
$contents = file_get_contents('output.txt'); echo $contents;
and the output is õõõõõõõõõõõõ. thats F5F5F5F5F5F5F5 in ISO-8859-1 format…why is that?
Can you paste the exact contents of output.txt or at least the first few hundred bytes.
u can go to this link and see the picture. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2133190 its inside the thread.
