I want to convert strings that repesent 64 bit signed integers to and from decimal and hexadecimal strings format. Note I don't need the data as a 64 bit integer (which is what searching google talks about) as I can do my maths by concatenating and slicing the hex string. The most significant 32 bits will always be FFFFFFFF.
Does anyone know of some functions available so I can avoid thinking?
String format ? Exactly what do you mean ? Numbers as strings don't necessarily imply a specific size of integer. You could convert the string to an Integer or a Long provided the number is small enough.
C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter
There's just no reason to use garbage like InputBox. -jmcilhinney
The strings are in the message table of NTDll.dll.mui. They are a decimal representation of &hffffffffnnnnnnnn where the n is the 32 bit NTStatus code. So I need to convert 64 bit integers or 64 bit hexedecimal string to a signed decimal representation so I can search for them.
