I was wondering if it is possible to subtract 30 from 4ah? i thought so i can convert the ascii character 'C' to hexadecimal '43', i will just subtract 30h from 43h, then add 30 so it will become 43 again and i will be able to perfrom arithmetic on it, but then i realized, what about when the hexadecimal has letters on it? hmm. help please!
