When pip installed, hex2file is added to your path. It can accept input directly from stdin or from a file with the '-f' flag. See hex2file --help.

Example: echo "0xFF00FF00" | hex2file /tmp/test


The module can also be imported into a Python project. After installing it simply import hex2file and use hex2file.write().
