Hex to Ascii (String) Converter
To use this hex to string converter, type a hex value like 6C 6F 76 65 and into the left field below and hit the Convert button. You will get the according string.
Hexadecimal System (Hex System)
The hexadecimal system (shortly hex), uses the number 16 as its base (radix). As a base-16 numeral system, it uses 16 symbols. These are the 10 decimal digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and the first six letters of the English alphabet (A, B, C, D, E, F). The letters are used because of the need to represent the values 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 each in one single symbol.
Hex is used in mathematics and information technologies as a more friendly way to represent binary numbers. Each hex digit represents four binary digits; therefore, hex is a language to write binary in an abbreviated form.
Four binary digits (also called nibbles) make up half a byte. This means one byte can carry binary values from 0000 0000 to 1111 1111. In hex, these can be represented in a friendlier fashion, ranging from 00 to FF.
In html programming, colors can be represented by a 6-digit hexadecimal number: FFFFFF represents white whereas 000000 represents black.
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is one of the most common character encoding standards. Originally developed from telegraphic codes, ASCII is now widely used in electronic communication for conveying text.
As computers can only understand numbers, the ASCII code represents text (characters) with different numbers. This is how a computer ‘understands’ and shows text.
The original ASCII is based on 128 characters. These are the 26 letters of the English alphabet (both in lower and upper cases); numbers from 0 to 9; and various punctuation marks. In the ASCII code, each of these characters are assigned a decimal number from 0 to 127. For example, the ASCII representation of upper case A is 65 and the lower case a is 97.
Hex to Ascii (String) Conversion
The string for a given hex number will depend on the programming language of the string. Theoretically you can invent your own alphabet and language, encode it and produce strings.
In ASCII, which is one of the most common encoding systems, a few conversion examples are as follows:
48 65 6C 6C 6F = Hello 68 65 6C 6C 6F = hello 47 6F 6F 64 20 6D 6F 72 6E 69 6E 67 = Good morning 6C 6F 76 65 = love 4C 6F 76 65 = Love
