    what do you mean "4bits in hexadecimal"?

    0x11A2A311 in decimal is 295871249, not 295874833, so I don't really understand your question.

    So, you still haven't clarified what you mean by "4 bits in hexadecimal"?

    Do you just want to convert a hexadecimal string to decimal? I'm going to assume that. If so, the easiest way is to use sscanf with a %x format specifier into an int then printf the int with %d.

    FYI, 0x11A2A311 won't fit in 4 bits. 0xF is the largest number you can fit into 4 bits. Maybe you meant 4 bytes?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
