in reply to I need Hex conversion, not!

      I need to use hex numbers for something but when I assign hex number to something

Your point is...?

If you want to print as hex you need to use the format string as you show in your second example...


If you don't want to do that "everywhere" you can always create a sub such that:

| hand waving here... my $n = 0x85; printf "and the majic number is: %s\n",as_hex($n); | more handwaving exit(0); sub as_hex{ my $x=shift; sprintf "%X",$x; }
