Relation between a hexadecimal sequence and a list of bytes. Hex
is an atom, string, list of characters or list of codes in
hexadecimal encoding. This is the format that is used by
crypto_data_hash/3 and related predicates to represent hashes.
Bytes is a list of integers between 0 and 255 that represent the
sequence as a list of bytes. At least one of the arguments must
be instantiated. When converting List to Hex, an atom is used
to represent the sequence of hexadecimal digits.
?- hex_bytes('501ACE', Bs).
Bs = [80, 26, 206].
