THE

SET HEX - set how hexadecimal strings are treated in string operands

Syntax:
[SET] HEX ON|OFF

Description:
The SET HEX set command determines whether hexadecimal strings are treated as such in string operands.

With the OFF option, no conversion is done.

This conversion should work wherever a string operand is used in any command.
