I having problem of sizeof returning a hexadecimal value which I want it return decimal
here is my sample code:

#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>
#include "stringCascade.h"

using namespace std;

void StringCascade (void)
{
     unsigned char ucA[] = {0x02, 0x6F, 0x09, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0xFF, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x04, 0xD4, 0x4A, 0x01, 0x00, 0x03, 0x03};
     int num = 16;
    

     cout<<endl;
     cout<<(int)sizeof(ucA)<<endl;
     cout<<dec<<(int)sizeof(ucA)<<endl;
     cout<<dec<<num<<endl;
}

why it will return a hex value? how can i get back integer value? i mean like size = sizeof(ucA), the variable "size" should store the size in decimal.

[B]sizeof()[/B] returns a binary value. Decimal and Hexadecimal are simply display values of those binary values to the user. If you see hex values it's because your [I]cout[/I] has been told to display the value as hex.
