Recommended Posts

Hello all i need to make to automatically make a TEXT file (i know how to create a file) with contents all possible 12 digit hex combinations starting from

000000000000
000000000001
000000000002
000000000003
000000000006
00000000000A
000000000010
000000000011
000000000018
000000000022
000000000033
000000000044
000000000055
000000000066
000000000077
000000000088
000000000099
0000000000AA

.....

.... etc etc

 

and ending to

FFFFFFFFFFFA
FFFFFFFFFFFB
FFFFFFFFFFFC
FFFFFFFFFFFD
FFFFFFFFFFFE
FFFFFFFFFFFF

 

How can i do that automatically ? (as if i manually write each one of these lines it will take forever) the output file i imagine would be quite large for all possible combinations


This file with be used for an IT security audit tool (no hacking purposes)

 

cheers

Hey,

Try a simple counter in a loop and increase it every time by 1 then convert it to hex and keep writing it to a file until it reaches your number.

I don't know if it would crash at those huge numbers tho :>

Quite large?  Seriously?

Such a file would be 3,940,649,673,949,170 bytes long, circa 3.5 Pb (Petabytes).

I mean if you enable on disk compression it would be significantly smaller


My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

Even at 90% compression it's still 394+ Tb.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Of course such a "file" is definitely unnecessary in any case. A simple (never-ending) For $i = 0 To 0xFFFFFFFFFFFF loop would be enough to achieve the task, provided your computer runs for that long.

Geez!
