Hello all,

My first question on this forum. Is there any particular reason that the APDU commands contain Hexadecimal and not decimal values??

Do you any other way to encode values from 0 to 255 using two characters ? ;-) Seriously, I guess this was decided way back when smartcards were born, which makes sense since everything was done (still true to a lesser extent) at assembly level ! I don't see anything wrong with that, really.
