    thanks

    That did help me understand more of what the numbers and letters mean, and i did need that. now I wast to get more into it. For example... I have to do this "activity" where I have to change an error message for some software to say something different using Hex. How do i do that? Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks!!!

    Look up the ascii table. Find the decimal number assocated with a particular symbol and convert it to hex. Open up the file with a hex editor and replace.

    Search for the string.

    It is a good idea to make the new string no longer than the old string, as you might overwrite something important in the program. And if it's shorter, null-terminate it.
