SubjectRe: [PATCH] hex <-> int conversion routines.

You might want this. Code generation is 0x34 bytes for Intel with
whatever compiler I'm using. It's generic. You could do the conversion
with no compares on intel, in 18 bytes using assembly, but that would
not be generic.

* Generic routine which returns the value of an arbitrary string
* of hex digits. It handles 'A' thru 'F' as well as 'a' thru 'f'.
* Courtesy of
int hex2bin(const char *hex)
int i, j;
j = 0;
while(*hex) {
j <<= 4;
if((i = (int) *hex++ - '0') > 9)
i -= 7;
j |= i & 95;
return j;

I was going to compile a list of innovations that could be
attributed to Microsoft. Once I realized that Ctrl-Alt-Del
was handled in the BIOS, I found that there aren't any.
