Take a look at the man pages for printf() and scanf().

Probably you may require sscanf( ) and its family of functions

JAVA HOST

E/-1(i[vector T(s)PI])

+/- infin.K/1

Do not change IP address to fit LAN, if you prefer C++ programming then use K/1 vector with simulink.

hi,
you can use following unix command to covert binary to text and text to binary,



uuencode - for binary to text file
uudecode - for text to binary



usage:

uuencode sourcefile file_lable > filename

uudecode filename


Eg:

uuencode data.dat data.dat > tdata.txt
uudecode tdata.txt
