in reply to BIN to HEX

You could first open the file, then read the byte in from the file handle, then inspect the byte.

# open a file open MYFILE, '<myfile.bin' or die 'can not open file'; # read a byte my $byte; read MYFILE, $byte, 1; # do perldoc -f read to see full doco # check the byte if ($byte > 0x30) { print "Byte is greater than 0x30\n"; } else { print "Byte is less than or equal to 0x30\n"; } # close the file close MYFILE;

    If the file is binary, you should add:

    binmode MYFILE;
    right after the open. Also the line:
    if ($byte > 0x30) {
    should read:
    if (ord($byte) > 0x30) {

    if ($byte > 0x30) {
    Shouldn't that be ord($byte) > 0x30?
