hex ascii to short

I have an ascii file with hex values. I need to read the values and convert
the string to a short. Is there an easy way to do this?

There is a KB article on how to do this (must be a common question).

It should work the same with Int16.Parse() instead of Int32.Parse() if
you want shorts.

If you are using VB, try something like this:
Dim s As String = "1C" ' a datum from your file goes here.
Dim i As Integer = CInt("&h" & s)
I believe a similar formulation will work in C#.
