        public static void dump(byte[] data,
                                long offset,
                                OutputStream stream,
                                int index)
                         throws IOException,
        Dump an array of bytes to an OutputStream. The output is formatted for human inspection, with a hexadecimal offset followed by the hexadecimal values of the next 16 bytes of data and the printable ASCII characters (if any) that those bytes represent printed per each line of output.

        The offset argument specifies the start offset of the data array within a larger entity like a file or an incoming stream. For example, if the data array contains the third kibibyte of a file, then the offset argument should be set to 2048. The offset value printed at the beginning of each line indicates where in that larger entity the first byte on that line is located.

        All bytes between the given index (inclusive) and the end of the data array are dumped.

        data - the byte array to be dumped
        offset - offset of the byte array within a larger entity
        stream - the OutputStream to which the data is to be written
        index - initial index into the byte array
        IOException - is thrown if anything goes wrong writing the data to stream
        ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if the index is outside the data array's bounds
        IllegalArgumentException - if the output stream is null
