Special Forums Windows & DOS: Issues & Discussions Convert "hex" foldername to "ascii" Post 303038552 by wisecracker on Thursday 5th of September 2019 03:04:04 PM
Hi MadeInGermany...

Absolutely - BUT - we are talking about Windows here and not UNIX, and the OP wanted it in Windows CMD[.EXE] or PowerShell.
I was showing the procedure, (rigmarole), as close as possible using a UNIX script. I can't remember the full sequence because it was years ago when I did it, but at least this is a starter.
In those days one had to convert any HEX to DECIMAL to be inserted into the EXIT code and I am sure you still have to do it that way...
SETting the variables, converting from hex to deci, and FOR loops in a FILE.BAT script should be second nature for a CMD.EXE batch file expert.

As I quoted, paraphrasing, "doing it in a CMD.EXE CLI is NOT trivial"...
AS I quoted before I don't know about PowerShell as I never really got into it, as, much like a standard batch file, IMHO, it is convoluted to code with.
