Binary files cannot be edited like text files in regular text editors because characters within certain code ranges are not printable.

This class provides a work around for editing binary files. It converts the file contents into lines of hexadecimal text, so it can be easily changed in a text editor.

The class can also convert the changed hexadecimal lines back to binary format before storing the updated binary file contents.
