[Tutor] Conversion question

First, thanks in advance for any insight on how to assist in making me a
better Python programmer.
Here is my question. I work with a lot of sockets and most of them require
hex data. I am usually given a string of data to send to the socket.
Is there a way in Python to say this is a string of HEX characters like
Perl's pack? Right now I have to take the string and add a \x to every two
values i.e. \x41\x42...
Sometimes my string values are 99+ bytes in length. I did write a parsing
program that would basically loop thru the string and insert the \x, but I
was wondering if there was another or better way.
Again, thanks in advance for any feedback.
