No representation I've seen is less pretty than NCR's for the C-315 (ca 
1963).  The 6 digits for the hex values were simply the six characters 
which happened to fall after the digits in the four-byte world.  I think 
10 was @...12 was space, and others were , . and two more.

Memory dumps in which spaces are either significant data or whitespace 
depending on column "can be a nuisance."  ;-)
