1st off, I'm new to JAVA/NETBEANS, and my experience lies mainly in C and the Sparc
assembly language. The above problem is one I've solved in C (input a string of hex
characters and then convert it to a binary array for the purposes of bit manipulation,
namely for debug tools such as ecc generation). I'd like to put a gui on this code and
thought java/netbeans might be the simplest way to go about it. In the process I hope
to learn just enough Java to be dangerous and get away from tedious cli's. I already
designed the gui using Netbeans. (That was simple part.)
Problem in a nutshell:
Perhaps someone has solved this problem before...I want to enter a 16 character hexadecimal string into a jTextField. I then want to convert that string into a 64 bit array
of 1's and 0's.
Once I have that, the rest is merely doing a lot (and I do mean a lot of xor's on
particular bits in the array and outputting the bits.
I would appreciate any help or even a pointer in the right direction because I'm
relatively clueless here.
Thanks in advance,
