BASH | Hex to Decimal Conversion

To convert a hexadecimal value to decimal using Bash, you can use either the printf command or bc. Here’s how to do it with printf:

printf "%d\n" 0x3000

This will output the decimal value corresponding to 0x3000.

Alternatively, using bc:

echo "ibase=16; 3000" | bc

This interprets 3000 as a hexadecimal value (base 16) and converts it to decimal.

In both cases, the result will be 12288.
