Hi I’m not the best at C but I’m trying to write a C program that basically opens a text file Which contains ascii text and its working fine now I want that it convert ascii data into HEX and save into different file in HEX format kindly help me how to do It using C programming language ??This is my code so far:

int main()
{

FILE *filePointer;
char ch;


filePointer = fopen("ascii.txt", "r");


if (filePointer == NULL)
{
    printf("File is not available \n");
}
else
{
    
    while ((ch = fgetc(filePointer)) != EOF)
    {
        printf("%c", ch);
    }
}


fclose(filePointer);

return 0;
 }


What I have tried:

Use the %X format type in your printf statement: printf - C++ Reference[^]

You know, there is not an 'hexadecimal format' for a file. However, there could be a file containing the hexadecimal representation of binary (as well ASCII) data.
To obtain such a file replace (as already suggested by Richard)
Quote:
printf("%c", ch);

with
C
printf("%02X ", ch);

Have a 5 from me. I omitted the width specification in the (rather forlorn) hope that OP would actually study the documentation in detail.

Thank you, Richard.
