Well, to print the above text I'd need exactly two lines of code:
std::cout << "00000000 74 65 73 74 | 5F 73 74 72 | 69 6E 67\n" <<
;-) Seriously, you comment above sounds more like asserting the quality of
your implementation, then anything else. Maybe it's a language barrier
If 50 lines is enough and those lines are simple, that's fine. What I
suggest to select one simple format and don't try to make it customizable
