in reply to How to convert binary to hexadecimal

That's a totally pointless requirement, but the following does achieve it:

$hex = sprintf('%X', oct("0b$bin"));

oct converts the binary representation of the number to a number, then sprintf '%X' converts it to its hex representation. It's never represented in decimal.

Update: Or maybe you're actually interested in converting bytes to their hex representation:

$hex = sprintf('%02X', ord($byte));
