Hexadecimal

A base-16 alphanumerical system used in various programming languages, usually written using characters 0-9 and A-F. Useful because each hexadecimal figure can represent every byte (8 bits) as two consecutive hexadecimal digits. Hexadecimal numbers have either an "0x" or "U+" prefix or an "h" suffix.
