                                  0x6a, 0x49, 0xfc, 0xf8,
                                  0x2d, 0x30, 0x3b, 0x4e,
                                  0xa0, 0x26, 0x3a, 0xd8]);
// = C9134BCA6A49FCF82D303B4EA0263AD8

hexarray.fromString("C9134BCA6A49FCF82D303B4EA0263AD8");     
// = Uint8Array [ 201, 19, 75, 202, 106, 73, 252, 248, 45, 48, 59, 78, 160, 38, 58, 216 ]

Methods

hexarray.toString(array, [options])

converts the given buffer to a string containing its hexadecimal representation.
array a Uint8Array buffer to convert.
options an optional object with the following members:
grouping this number of hex bytes are grouped together with spaces between groups. 0 means no grouping is applied. 0 if unspecified.
rowlength the number of groups which make up a row. When 0, no splitting into rows occurs. 0 if unspecified.
uppercase if true, the output will be in uppercase. true by default.
return a hexadecimal string representing the buffer.

hexarray.fromString(string)

takes a string containing hexadecimal and returns the equivalent as a Uint8Array buffer.
string The string to convert. Whitespace is ignored. If an odd number of characters are specified, it will act as if preceeded with a leading 0; that is, "FFF" is equivalent to "0FFF".
return a Uint8Array array.
