- Decoding URL encoding (percent encoding) 13 answers
I have a script which process some information coming from a web page. I guess that because of the encoding of the page, some special characters are encoded in hexadecimal. For example, I have the the string "%2f" that should be translated to "/".
How can I, in bash, translate those special characters in hex to ASCII? Any ideas?
