<p>On some Linux based operating systems (e.g. Archlinux, Gentoo, Solus) the <code>xxd</code> utility is supplied with <code>vim</code>, on others it is a stand-alone package. I don't think I would call it universally installed on systems. Does it make sense to add a test if it is installed/executable before attempting to generate the files?</p>
