Hhhmmm...I have never had such need. I don't think there is such a shortcut in Fortran as there is in C; so, I am afraid you are going to have to write your own little function to do so.

First, you will have to convert the character to decimal; you can use ichar(letter) for that. But then, you need your own little recursive function to produce hex. Here is a simple explanation of how to go about it for any decimal.
