I can't think of any reason why someone would WANT to program in binary/hex machine code.  If you want to program in a language that is as close to the metal as you can get, just learn Assembly.  It will save you many headaches, especially if you're planning on writing for x86 CPUs.  The number of opcodes is absurd without even getting into 64-bit instructions, SSE, etc.
