This GUI displays a binary file contents in hexadecimal and character representations. The file's bytes are grouped into 16-byte lines, with values paired into 2-byte words.

An optional output argument dumps the contents to a MATLAB character array, bypassing the GUI.

It is similar in appearance to Emacs' hexl-mode.
