To return a string which represents the hexadecimal value of the numeric argument.
HEX$ converts decimal values within the range of -32768 to +65535 into a hexadecimal string expression within the range of 0 to FFFF.
Hexadecimal numbers are numbers to the base 16, rather than base 10 (decimal numbers). Appendix C and Appendix G in the GW-BASIC User's Guide contain more information on hexadecimals and their equivalents.
x is rounded to an integer before HEX$(x) is evaluated. See the OCT$ function for octal conversions.
If x is negative, 2's (binary) complement form is used.
