Overview ▾

Package hex implements hexadecimal encoding and decoding.

Variables

ErrLength results from decoding an odd length slice.

var ErrLength = errors.New("encoding/hex: odd length hex string")

func Decode

func Decode(dst, src []byte) (int, error)

Decode decodes src into DecodedLen(len(src)) bytes, returning the actual number of bytes written to dst.

Decode expects that src contain only hexadecimal characters and that src should have an even length.

Example

Hello Gopher!

func DecodeString

func DecodeString(s string) ([]byte, error)

DecodeString returns the bytes represented by the hexadecimal string s.

Example

Hello Gopher!

func DecodedLen

func DecodedLen(x int) int

DecodedLen returns the length of a decoding of x source bytes. Specifically, it returns x / 2.

func Dump

func Dump(data []byte) string

Dump returns a string that contains a hex dump of the given data. The format of the hex dump matches the output of `hexdump -C` on the command line.

Example

00000000  47 6f 20 69 73 20 61 6e  20 6f 70 65 6e 20 73 6f  |Go is an open so|

func Dumper

func Dumper(w io.Writer) io.WriteCloser

Dumper returns a WriteCloser that writes a hex dump of all written data to w. The format of the dump matches the output of `hexdump -C` on the command line.

Example

00000000  47 6f 20 69 73 20 61 6e  20 6f 70 65 6e 20 73 6f  |Go is an open so|

func Encode

func Encode(dst, src []byte) int

Encode encodes src into EncodedLen(len(src)) bytes of dst. As a convenience, it returns the number of bytes written to dst, but this value is always EncodedLen(len(src)). Encode implements hexadecimal encoding.

Example

48656c6c6f20476f7068657221

func EncodeToString

func EncodeToString(src []byte) string

EncodeToString returns the hexadecimal encoding of src.

Example

48656c6c6f

func EncodedLen

func EncodedLen(n int) int

EncodedLen returns the length of an encoding of n source bytes. Specifically, it returns n * 2.

type InvalidByteError

InvalidByteError values describe errors resulting from an invalid byte in a hex string.

type InvalidByteError byte

func (InvalidByteError) Error

func (e InvalidByteError) Error() string
