Re: Printing byte as 2 Hex characters

in reply to Printing byte as 2 Hex characters

printf ("%lX ", $buffer);

You probably want ord:

printf ("0x%lX ", ord $buffer);

because what you have in $buffer is a single byte string, not a number.

A more direct way might be to use unpack "H*", ...

$ perl -E'say unpack "H*", "foobar"' 666f6f626172

or maybe unpack "(H2)*", ..., as in

$ perl -E'say "0x$_" for unpack "(H2)*", "foobar"' 0x66 0x6f 0x6f 0x62 0x61 0x72

in which case your buffer could consist of more than one byte.
