    Formatting string in Bin_To_Hex$ function

    Hello ThinBasic developpers.

    May I suggest optionnal parameters to Bin_To_Hex$( string ) function ?

    A number of bytes grouping , an a separator string.

    Bin_To_Hex$("Hello") gives 48656C6C6F
    Bin_To_Hex$("Hello" , 2 ,":") should give 4865:6C6C:6F

    and if no separator string is provided a space is used as default.
    Bin_To_Hex$("Hello" , 2 ) should give 4865 6C6C 6F

    I think it could improve readability.

    I mean if a keyword has to be upgraded, it should be "USING$" so it can be useful for other purposes (versatility).


    But you can achieve your goal with STRINSERT$:

    '---Load Console Module
    Uses "Console"
    
    dim teststring as String
    Dim yourstring as string
    
    teststring = Bin_To_Hex$("Hello") 'gives 48656C6C6F
    
    printl teststring
    
    'Bin_To_Hex$("Hello" , 2 ,":") should give 4865:6C6C:6F
    
    yourstring = StrInsert$(teststring,":",-4)
    printl yourstring
    
    'and if no separator string is provided a space is used as default.
    'Bin_To_Hex$("Hello" , 2 ) should give 4865 6C6C 6F
    
    yourstring = StrInsert$(teststring," ",-4)
    printl yourstring
    
    PrintL "Press a key to end program"
    
    '---Wait for a key press
    WaitKey
