Function Details [hide private]

hex_encode(input, errors='strict')

 

Encodes the object input and returns a tuple (output object, length consumed).

errors defines the error handling to apply. It defaults to 'strict' handling which is the only currently supported error handling for this codec.

hex_decode(input, errors='strict')

 

Decodes the object input and returns a tuple (output object, length consumed).

input must be an object which provides the bf_getreadbuf buffer slot. Python strings, buffer objects and memory mapped files are examples of objects providing this slot.

errors defines the error handling to apply. It defaults to 'strict' handling which is the only currently supported error handling for this codec.
