With respect to byte-bit system functions, hexadecimal byte literals are interpreted as follows:

A 2-byte hexadecimal byte literal: '00FF'XB



A 4-byte hexadecimal byte literal: '01020304'XB



Note that hexadecimal byte literals are represented by an even number of hexadecimal digits. Hexadecimal literals are extended on the right with zeros when required. For example:

A 3-byte hexadecimal byte literal, '112233'XB, becomes a 4-byte hexadecimal byte literal: '11223300'XB
