Is there any simple way to convert an ASCII character to a hex character in Python, or at least to convert an ASCII character to it corresponding integer value?

Hm, try to search in google for a while before asking questions...

Anyway, it's the ord() function. ord('X') gives the ASCII value of character 'X'.

I actually did search google for quite a while, and I couldn't find anything, thanks for the answer though.

The hex function can convert an integer to a hexadecimal value. This should do the trick:

hex(ord(c))

Understand that the return value is a string, in the format '0x00'. So, if you sent 255 into the hex function, the result would be '0xff'.
