I knocked up this little utility for Will on the Amiga-Hacks
mailing list, so he could send hex in text.  Hi Will!

Usage: cha_willprint <inputfile >outputfile
Example: cha_willprint <cha_willprint.example >PAR:

File format:  you put a hex code in between <...> in your
text (upper or lower case, must be two digits), and the
output will contain that hex code.  This means that you
can't use < and > in the text itself, but you can use the
codes <3C> and <3E> respectively.  Check out the example
text.

Notes:
  - you can abort with control-C if you're getting scared
  - no error messages: check the return code in the shell
    (0 is good, not 0 is bad)
  - if you use Amiga escape codes and send the output to
    PRT: it should be more hardware independent than using
    printer escape codes and sending the output to PAR:,
    but then special printer commands are much longer, and
    you need a driver for the printer

Future:
  - standard ANSI codes (perhaps like <#bold> ... <#\bold>)
  - no new version will appear if no-one wants it
