Why would this print the bytes in hex format? “Convert to hexadecimal”
is not the default text encoding for ‘print’.
Instead, use the built-in ‘hex’ function to create a new string with
the value of the bytes:
bytes = fd.read(8)
for byte in bytes:
If that's not sufficient, you'll need to be more explicit in
describing what it is you want to do.
