feel a bit stupid asking this (sounds as basics) but can't find an answer elsewhere. I want to convert binary data to hex, just that, no fancy formatting and all.
seems too clever, it "overformats" for me. I want to take x bytes from the /dev/random and pass them on as hex.
Preferably I'd like to use only standard linux tools, so that I don't need to install it on every machine (there are many)
