Here's an sprintf approach that avoids regex fireworks:

Win8 Strawberry 5.30.3.1 (64) Mon 08/30/2021 18:36:38 C:\@Work\Perl\monks >perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings my @n_list = (0, 1, 255, 256, 65535, 65536, 16777215, 16777216, 429496 +7295,); sub n2hstr_2 { # compatible with perl version 5.8 return join ' ', map { my $w = $_ > 65535 ? 8 : $_ > 255 ? 4 : 2; unpack '(a2)*', sprintf '%0*x', $w, $_; } @_ ; } sub number2hexString { my $output; my $packTemplate; foreach my $i (@_) { if ($i > 65535) { $packTemplate = 'L>'; } elsif ($i > 255) { $packTemplate = 'S>'; } else { $packTemplate = 'C'; } $output .= join(' ', unpack('(H2)*', pack($packTemplat +e, $i))).' '; } return $output; } my $n_n2hstr = n2hstr_2 (@n_list); my $n_number2hexString = number2hexString(@n_list); print "@n_list \n"; print "'$n_n2hstr' \n"; print "'$n_number2hexString' \n"; ^Z 0 1 255 256 65535 65536 16777215 16777216 4294967295 '00 01 ff 01 00 ff ff 00 01 00 00 00 ff ff ff 01 00 00 00 ff ff ff ff' '00 01 ff 01 00 ff ff 00 01 00 00 00 ff ff ff 01 00 00 00 ff ff ff ff +'
As you see, the outputs are the same — except that number2hexString() adds an extra space at the end of the output string! I don't attempt to handle negative numbers since I don't yet understand how they should be handled.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
