The input is from a binary file which contains series of octets.The
output is another file if the MAC address matches.

In that case your question makes absolutely no sense. If the input is
binary, and the mac addresses are already in byte form, then there's no
conversion between "hexadecimal" and "decimal". Those are *ascii*
representations of numbers, not binary ones.
