HEX$ Function

Purpose:

To return a string which represents the hexadecimal value of the numeric argument.

Syntax:

v$=HEX$(x)

Comments:

HEX$ converts decimal values within the range of -32768 to +65535 into a hexadecimal string expression within the range of 0 to FFFF.

Hexadecimal numbers are numbers to the base 16, rather than base 10 (decimal numbers).

x is rounded to an integer before HEX$(x) is evaluated. See the OCT$ function for octal conversions.

If x is negative, 2's (binary) complement form is used.

Examples:

10 CLS: INPUT "INPUT DECIMAL NUMBER";X
20 A$=HEX$(X)
30 PRINT X "DECIMAL IS "A$" HEXADECIMAL"
RUN
 INPUT DECIMAL NUMBER? 32
 32 DECIMAL IS 20 HEXADECIMAL
