Base16 encoding and decoding
Both `encode/1` and `decode/1` functions are of `(binary()) -> binary()` type.
The usage looks like:
B = crypto:rand_bytes(10).
H = base16:encode(B).
B = base16:decode(H).
* `base16:encode/1` returns lower-case letters.
* `base16:decode/1` requires the argument to be a binary of odd-number size, and it parses both in upper-case or lower-case encoding.
Code is implemented using lookup tables, which tremendously speeds-up the algorithm and consumes constant memory. It's the fastest you can get using pure Erlang code!
Note that, lookup tables also means that the code-size is bigger.
If you're running on embedded, where smaller code-sizes are the actual best, you might benefit from using the version 1.0.0, both available on github and hex.
