encodes bytes into ASCII hex characters

Reads src_len bytes starting at src and writes src_len * 2 bytes of ASCII hex characters starting at dest. The high-order nibble is written first.

Return Values

0 if dest_len is too small to hold the entire encoding, or the number of ASCII hex characters written.
