UNHEX

Syntax

UNHEX(str)

Description

Performs the inverse operation of HEX(str). That is, it interprets each pair of hexadecimal digits in the argument as a number and converts it to the character represented by the number. The resulting characters are returned as a binary string.

If str is NULL, UNHEX() returns NULL.
