How to write a raw hex byte to stdout in Python 3?

How do you get Python 3 to output raw hexadecimal byte? I want to output the hex

0xAA
.

If I use
print(0xAA)
, I get the ASCII '170'.

Answer

The solution was to first create a bytes object:

x = bytes.fromhex('AA')

And then output this to stdout using the buffered writer

sys.stdout.buffer.write(x)
