    Default Program to convert Hexadecimal to its Character equivalent

    Hey all!

    I have a problem lol.

    I am trying to convert a hexadecimal value to its character equivilent.

    The specific task is a school assignment and I am very open about this. I need to import a file which contains the contents of the said hexadecimal values, read the file and display the characters on the screen.

    I have EVERYTHING done except fot the actual conversion lol. I have the import, printing even the loops to read the file from start to finish. All I need now is to know how to actually do the conversion lol. Is there an easy way to do this?

    So my simple question is this.

    String fileContents = 004e
    //convert the file contents here
    Println(character)

    finished.

    How can this be done?
    \
    Thanks all!!!

    Hello nathanernest and welcome to the Java Programming Forums

    To convert the fileContents String to its corresponding character value, you will probably need a load of 'if' statements.

    Can you please post the code you have so far, including the file it reads and I will take a look.

    Here is an example:

    String fileContents = 004e
     
    if(fileContents.equals("004e")){
    System.out.println("E")
    }
