Ok, thank you.

Does anybody know how to convert a HEX into a BINARY?

Best regards

Heiko

Oh ! You meant the other way around ?

If you have a string with an Hex number in it it's very easy :

a = int("F04", 16)

you can replace "16" with every base you want :)

After that, to get an octal representation :

"%o" % a

But I don't know for binary representation ... nor for any other base :( That's somthing missing I think !
