hexio -- tools to access hardware

When working with hardware, we often need console access. Tools like minicom make that easy, but only if the interaction uses ASCII. This toolkit also works well if the input and/or output is hexadecimal.

Hexio consists of a number of independent utitilities that can be composed as filters. Plugging the right ones together makes it possible to access a bit of hardware just as needed, with much more flexibility than simply using a terminal emulator.
