I was going over some changes and I noticed that in squeak
in pharo we have
hex that always returns 16rXX
$A hex '16r41'
20 hex '16r14'
Even if this is regular this is not really nice. In fact this ones should be fixed to return numbers and not strings.
I do not understand why hex should return a string.
and in pharo
printStringHex the XX part only
Here this is a string since the name says it.
In VW there is asHexString which is nice too.
So could we agree on that and get a system that is nicer and more consistent.
