Convert all values in a column to hexadecimal string values

Use map() to iterate over and update all input rows. Use hex.string() to update the value of a column. The following example uses data provided by the sampledata package.

import "sampledata"
import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

data =
    sampledata.int()
        |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: r._value * 1000}))

data
    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: hex.string(v: r.foo)}))
