    for hex:
    you might be able to use a union between a 2 char array and a short int, read in two chars and place them in the array, and the answers in the short int.

    in the case of bcd:
    read in two chars. multiply the second one by ten and add to the first one.

    Read them as a string from a file, then parse them
    as whatever you intend to do with them.
