A hexdump facility has been available for many, many years via an unsupported class: sun.misc.HexDumpEncoder.
Although that class was always unsupported, it was still accessible. That accessibility changes with Jigsaw so I’m proposing
a very simple replacement in a new and supported class: java.util.HexDump.
