'[EE] Unicode hex display font'
2005\04\14@122251 by Mike Hord

I'm looking for a font which will take plaintext unicode and display
the hex values.

If that's not clear, imagine it this way:  Given a sample of text,
I'd like to highlight it, change the font, and be given a display
of the unicode character code for each character.

My thought is that this would be an easy way to see what a
serial device is returning in HyperTerminal.  I know, there are
other programs that can be used, but if I can do it in HT, why
not?

Does anyone know of such a beast?  Or of a free way to make
it?  Google for "hex display font" and variations on such does
not seem to produce any good results, and I am hesitant to
visit free font websites because they seem to be popup spyware
breeders.

You mean something that would display 31 instead of "1" in diagonal
sub-boxes of a single character position?  I think I've seen things
like that on some old terminals with 'display hex' capability.  If you
need it to do 16 or 32bit unicode, that's going to be pretty tough!

I suppose 8-bit is really all I need, but yes, that's it exactly.  I'm not
finding anything in my search...I may have to try to make something.

Or just suck it up and use a different program.

Does Hyperterm give you the extended characters (8 bit- line drawing, etc.)
already? If it doesn't, then a new font isn't going to get you what
you want is it? And what about the control codes? Unless you are in
binary mode you're not going to see ESC, DC1, XON/XOFF, etc..

What you see depends on the font you use.  MANY of those characters
simply aren't drawn.  Some are.  Most of the fonts HyperTerm uses are
quite simple and don't have a very extended character set.

I'm probably giving up on this idea; I found a good little terminal program
that more or less does what I need.  We'll see what happens when it
expires in 30 days- it's not of high enough quality to be worth the
hassle of arranging purchase.

An aside: Teraterm is something quite similar to HyperTerm, just better
IMO. And just as free (if you consider that you already have Windows).

This may do what you want, and it won't expire:
http://realterm.sourceforge.net/

It even comes with a hex font that you can use with HyperTerm if you
want... (Not Unicode, though, only 8bit hex, but it seems that was what you
really wanted in the first place.)

And differently from most "normal" Windows programs, it even has a decent
command line interface.

Wow.  Looks good!  If I can get it to download...I'm getting an error right
now.

Thanks for the pointer!
