HTD() Split a continuous string of hexadecimal numbers into a table.

  • characters that cannot be converted to numbers are ignored.
    • the result of the api's tonum('0x'..v) of the api.
  • depending on the delimiter, a missing last character will result in a lower digit by the number of missing characters.
  • This function consumes 30 Token.

we don’t need the "0x".. trick anymore! https://www.lexaloffle.com/dl/docs/pico-8_manual.html#TONUM

Hi, @merwok

Yes, I understand that it works without "0x"...

Please recall this thread again.

I simply cannot say which is the better one.
However, the reason I still use this method is strongly personal convenience.
As for the function TONUM(), I want nil to be returned for any exception character that cannot be converted to a number.
