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

Hi, I want to read hex data from a binary file and print it on the screen as is. i.e., if data -> ffa3 After printing this on the screen, it should show ffa3 NOT the ASCII equivalents. How can I achieve that using pack or unpack? Thank you.

      Thank you for your answer. It worked. unpack("H*", $data)
