I am writing LUA disectors for Wireshark packets. I am calling a utility application written in C from LUA file. I am getting a string (null terminated) from C application which in in hex string format (like 2CA000).
I want to convert this string in numeric or float format with LUA' API like uint or float but LUA fails in conversion. I used to do operations as below
print("Port ", buffer(2, 2):uint())
In the same way, I am trying to do same operations with output (hex string) given by C utilty but it is failing for this string (2CA000).
I have checked the type of buffer as
print("Port ", type(buffer(2, 2))) //output is userdata
but for my output (2CA000), type is string.
So I want an API which converts the datatype into userdata or any API which converts the hex string into numeric format.
Thanks in Advance
