kepler has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Good morning

I would need a little help on this subject - I apreciate in advance. If I have two strings that represent to hexadecimal values, let's say "12340F" and "33", how can I multiply them and get the result in hexadecimal too? I'm just asking this because of course there's a way of doing it by reducing the 2 values to decimal, multiply and convert to hex again. I was just wondering if there's a way of doing it directly in Perl

Kind regards

Kepler
