Hi,

I used znort987's github blockchain parsing repo to get the following output on blocks:

3   \0\0\0\0UԺ@>o 5t,bFDI   1231470173
4   \0\0\0\0NUɢ\   Y֋"HJ   1231470988
5   \0\0\0\0rb1]6V\   {* "3   1231471428
6   \0\0\0\001 75i Z򤾂U;*vӢ܏w   1231471789
7   \0\0\0\0ql+_F䅲YJ ̽TAȔD   1231472369

The middle column is a block's hash. How can I change this hash into alphanumeric characters? E.g.   "hash":"0000000000000001bfd57dad6bad2a345a47d6f3b4eb91925a6084016c1c19bc",


Thanks!

Convert each byte to a hexadecimal representation. For each byte b of the hash, compute b / 16 and b % 16 as the two hexadecimal digits that represent that byte.

That sounds correct in principle, but how can I apply those operations to the string:

\0\0\0\0UԺ@>o 5t,bFDI

?

Thanks!

Does anyone have a method for transforming these type of characters into alphanumeric strings?

Yeah, true. You would need to get the actual bytes instead or use a modified blockparser that outputs the hash instead of those characters.
