Hexidecimal Serial Console: Is There such a thing?

I'm fairly new to device drivers etc, and I'm using a sniffer to find out the protocol for a device. There are currently no libraries for it, so I'm out of luck there. I used a sniffer on windows to communicate to the device via serial port, and now I want to play around with it and try to get it to give up it's data with a console. The only problem is that the only serial console's I've worked with are in ASCII, and the protocol is in hex. Well, there are legable ASCII characters, but their obscure and not worth typing. They also include several different hex numbers that all turn out to be a dot (00, 01, etc). Is there some way I could either a) echo comands to the device in hex, or b) use some form of console to talk to the device in hex.
