LHEX primary command

In Browse, View and Edit, the LHEX command displays the data for one or more fields in long hexadecimal format. In LHEX format, each character is shown as two hexadecimal characters, which are displayed from left to right. For example, '1' appears as 'F1' in LHEX format. Only character fields are affected.
