As an aside, a much better way of converting a string representing a
hexadecimal number to an int is simply with the int function/type:
The version you use above is potentially exploitable by a third party,
particularly since you don't specify an absolute path to stat, so
potentially some third-party version could be executed which might do
something you wouldn't expect.
