.. function:: hex(x)

Convert an integer number to a lowercase hexadecimal string prefixed with
"0x". If x is not a Python :class:`int` object, it has to define an
__index__() method that returns an integer. Some examples:
"0x". If *x* is not a Python :class:`int` object, it has to define an
:meth:`__index__` method that returns an integer. Some examples:

>>> hex(255)

int(x, base=10)

Return an integer object constructed from a number or string *x*, or return
``0`` if no arguments are given. If *x* is a number, return
:meth:`x.__int__() <object.__int__>`. If *x* defines
:meth:`x.__trunc__() <object.__trunc__>` but not
:meth:`x.__int__() <object.__int__>`, then return
:meth:`x.__trunc__() <object.__trunc__>`. For floating point numbers,
this truncates towards zero.
``0`` if no arguments are given. If *x* defines :meth:`__int__`,
``int(x)`` returns ``x.__int__()``. If *x* defines :meth:`__trunc__`,
it returns ``x.__trunc__()``.
For floating point numbers, this truncates towards zero.

If *x* is not a number or if *base* is given, then *x* must be a string,
:class:`bytes`, or :class:`bytearray` instance representing an :ref:`integer
