View any (binary) string as a hexdump

This is most commonly used to view binary data from streams or sockets while debugging, but can be used to view any string with non-viewable characters.

Usage

Once installed, using this library is as simple as running:

$dumper = new Clue\Hexdump\Hexdump();
echo $dumper->dump("this string \x12\x15\x16 contains \x00 binary \x04 data");

Its output will look something like this:

0000  74 68 69 73 20 73 74 72  69 6e 67 20 12 15 16 20   this str ing ... 
0010  63 6f 6e 74 61 69 6e 73  20 00 20 62 69 6e 61 72   contains  . binar
0020  79 20 04 20 64 61 74 61                            y . data
