EBCDIC Hexadecimal to Character conversion


This script will convert well formed hexadecimal EBCDIC (Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code) character codes typed or pasted in the left field below into the characters they represent. EBCDIC is an 8-bit character code, much like ASCII, which is used by IBM and Unisys mainframe operating systems.

Hex characters must be in pairs. Hex codes that do not map to any valid EBCDIC character code will appear as a dot ".", and codes that map to valid but non-displayable EBCDIC characters will be represented by a mnemonic in pointy brackets, e.g. <EOT>.

A valid hex string will look like this:
E388854083969497A4A38599408881A2409985829696A38584408699969440814082A48783888583924B
