(bytes-from-hexadecimal-string string &key element-type padding byte-sex case)
function

ELEMENT-TYPE: The element-type of the BYTE-VECTOR (if NIL, then
              (unsigned-byte 8) is used).

PADDING:      When NIL, the number of hexadecimal digits per byte is
              the minimum required (a vector of (unsigned-byte 3)
              would use one hexadecimal digit per element).  Otherwise
              it's at least PADDING.

BYTE-SEX:     When more than one octet are needed to store the bytes,
              they're ordered according to the byte-sex:

                 :big-endian    most significant octets first.
                 :little-endian least significant octets first.

              Notice that the quads in the octets are always stored first.

RETURN:       A string containing the hexadecimal digits representing the vector.

(bytes-to-hexadecimal-string byte-vector &key element-type padding byte-sex case)
function

ELEMENT-TYPE: The element-type of the BYTE-VECTOR (if NIL, then
              (ARRAY-ELEMENT-TYPE BYTE-VECTOR) is used.

PADDING:      When NIL, the number of hexadecimal digits per byte is
              the minimum required (a vector of (unsigned-byte 3)
              would use one hexadecimal digit per element).  Otherwise
              it's at least PADDING.

BYTE-SEX:     When more than one octet are needed to store the bytes,
              they're ordered according to the byte-sex:

                 :big-endian    most significant octets first.
                 :little-endian least significant octets first.

              Notice that the quads in the octets are always stored first.

RETURN:       A string containing the hexadecimal digits representing the vector.
