      Convert a string into a byte array in hex format.
      For each character (b) two bytes are generated, the first byte 
      represents the high nibble (4 bits) in hexidecimal (<code>b & 0xf0</code>),
      the second byte represents the low nibble (<code>b & 0x0f</code>).
      The character at <code>str.charAt(0)</code> is represented by the first two bytes 
      in the returned String.

      @param  str string 
      @param  offset  starting character (zero based) to convert.
      @param  length  number of characters to convert.

      @return the byte[]  (with hexidecimal format) form of the string (str) 
  public static byte[] toHexByte(String str, int offset, int length)
      byte[] data = new byte[(length - offset) * 2];
      int end = offset+length;

      for (int i = offset; i < end; i++)
          char ch = str.charAt(i);
          int high_nibble = (ch & 0xf0) >>> 4;
          int low_nibble = (ch & 0x0f);
          data[i] = (byte)high_nibble;
          data[i+1] = (byte)low_nibble;
