A Python module for writing hex string content to a file.

Writes ascii hex strings to a file directly as in binary hex format. The string can be multi-line or single-line and 0x-prefixed or not. Excess whitespace in the input is ignored.

The following input (multi-line string):
0xFF00FF00
0xAABBCCDD
0x12345678
98765432 3456789A

Would result in the following file content:
FF00FF00AABBCCDD12345678987654323456789A
