Creates a C array from a hex-string.


Usage: python3 hex2array_c.py HEX_STRING [-h|--help]
Use '-' to read the hex string from STDIN.

    python3 hex2array_c.py '0x9d35 0x3f19 0xcf12 0xcd72 0x7f4f 0xa035 0xb307 0x8f07'
    python3 hex2array_c.py '9d-3f-cf-cd-7f-a0-b3-8f' -w4

    cat ./afilewithbinarydata | python3 hex2array_c.py - -s4 -w4
    head -c 32 /dev/urandom | python3 hex2array_c.py -

    -n, --array-name NAME       The name to give to the generated array. The default is 'data'.
    -a, --array-type TYPE       The data type of the generated array. The default is 'const char'.
    -w, --array-width WIDTH     The number of array elements per row. The default is '8'.
    -s, --byte-length LENGTH    The byte length of each array element. The default is '1'.
    -t, --size SIZE             Trim the input to the specified size.
    -e, --swap-endianness       Swap the byte ordering of the generated array. The default is 'False'.



Pass '-' to the program to read the hex string from stdin.
