Hello Group 

Thanks for your responses so far. I have not been clear it seems so
here it goes:

The file is binary. Using the standard hpux or linux hexdump (xxd or
xd) this is the output that is obtained:

0000000: 5c1a 0100 0100 ff35 0399 7272 9903 0002  \......5..rr....
0000010: 010e 0300 050a 0214 ffff ffff 5cd4 2e01  ............\...
0000020: fbb9 5900 b400 0000 0020 2000 b502 5423  ..Y......  ...T#

0000040: ffff ffff ff00 ff07 0209 3519 4fff ffff  ..........5.O...
0000050: ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff  ................
0000060: ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff  ................
0000070: ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff  ................
0000080: ffff ffff ffff ff00 5435 3617 040a d207  ........T56.....

00000d0: 0000 0000 fcb9 5900 b400 0000 0020 2000  ......Y......  .

00000f0: ffff ffff ffff ffff ff00 2094 3965 0702  .......... .9e..
0000100: 0935 194f ffff ffff ffff ff07 0209 3519  .5.O..........5.
0000110: 4fff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff  O...............
0000120: ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff  ................
0000130: ffff ffff ffff ffff ffff ff00 1536 3617  .............66.

Each hex character is 8 bits. I would like to convert one byte at the
time and pipe the converted data into a new file.

Thanx in advance
Regards
Dean
