Summary:  Make a hexdump or do the reverse
Description: 
xxd creates a hex dump of a given file or standard input. It can
also convert a hex dump back to its original binary form. Like
uuencode(1) and uudecode(1) it allows the transmission of binary
data in a `mail-safe' ASCII representation, but has the
advantage of decoding to standard output. Moreover, it can be
used to perform binary file patching.
