Default Want to reiterate on my char to int problem

As the Thread title Suggests I am having a problem taking 2 chars (which make up a byte) from the array and placing it into an Integer Variable all the while allowing it to retain its value. I have books here that Explain Type Conversion, but it does not go into Copius Detail on char to int conversion.

The 2 char values I am trying to take from the array will end up being a HEX Value within the Integer Variable.

I am trying to do 2 things:

1). Convert 2 chars from the array into an Integer HEX Value
2). Convert that New HEX Valued Integer to a Decimal Integer Value.

For the Sake of this thread, I will give an example:

RawPacket = 3
RawPacket[9] = 9

Now this comes from the following Data within the array:

4840200039 |Array Data
0123456789 |Corresponding Array Position
        \         ----------------------Position of 3 and 9
What I want to do is take that 3 and 9, put it together and put 39 into an int variable.

Then take that 39 and convert it into a decimal value which in this case would be 57.

Another Example:

484020005C |Array Data
0123456789 |Corresponding Array Position
        \         ----------------------Position of 5 and C
What I want to do is take that 5 and C, put it together and put 5C into an int variable.

Then take that 5C and convert it into a decimal value which in this case would be 92.

I have had some algorithms given to me, but none of them worked.

Hopefully someone here can help me if possible.

Thank you
