HEX

Syntax

HEX(N_or_S)

Description

If N_or_S is a number, returns a string representation of the hexadecimal value of N, where N is a longlong (BIGINT) number. This is equivalent to CONV(N,10,16).

If N_or_S is a string, returns a hexadecimal string representation of N_or_S where each byte of each character in N_or_S is converted to two hexadecimal digits. If N_or_S is NULL, returns NULL. The inverse of this operation is performed by the UNHEX() function.
