Hexadecimal to Binary Add-on

This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
After having various people ask me about where Splunk's command for converting a hexadecimal value in a field to a binary value to be placed in another field, I decided to create an add-on - this is what the Hex2Binary add-on does. The use cases came from retail and energy, but the applications are vast and ultimately will save time with a simple marco call that is passed the field where the hexadecimal values reside. Once installed, the marco is globally available to all apps and uses within your Splunk instance.

Once you download and install the SPL file in Splunk, you can go to the ".../etc/apps/SA_Hex2Binary/" folder and that is a README.txt with more information on the use of the add-on/macro.

Please contact me with any questions, enhancements, or concerns.

Release Notes
