what does it mean, "…can only be accessed through a hex editor"?

The token exists, but the TIOS doesn't actually provide it through its menus, so it becomes necessary to create an instance of the token using Assembly and then unlock the program so that it can be read through the program editor. Does that make sense?
Simplified version of what Weregoose said:
The only way to access something that is only accessable through a hex editor is to get an assembly program, or application, that
lets you type it, by putting it in their program. When this program or app is run,(usually), it either automatically, or through user input,
stores it to a string. This string that now contains the token, such as the "%", can now be recalled, wherever you want it to be
typed. Because, as Weregoose said, the TIOS supports it, but it can't be accessed through any menu built into the TIOS.
//(note: you could also use some "Output(" commands, and use a token, such as "I%", (found in the Vars finance menu), and then
output something onto the "I". Also, only certain TIOS's support the: "Only accessable through hex editor" tokens, (such as "%"))
what ASM programs are there that will facilitate this?
it will give you all the tokens you need
it will also give you 256 pic vars, string vars, matrix vars, and graph database vars
Here's one way to generate the percent sign on your own:
- Create a program called TEMP: :AsmPrgm:BBDA
- Compile it from the home screen: AsmComp(prgmTEMP,prgmPERCENT
- Unlock prgmPERCENT using MirageOS or Calcsys (read their respective documentation to learn how).
- Edit prgmPERCENT to isolate the %.
- Rcl prgmPERCENT when inside a program to paste the % wherever you want it.
I would advise that you do not use the Asm( token during this process.
