Add 1 to Hex values in cobol

Lets say I have to print all the Hex values possible in COBOL, 

I will start with X’00’ and Keep incrementing the hex value by X’01’ in a loop for all the 255 hex chars.

Can some one suggest the logic to approach the above problem? A friend hinted that its possible with binary addition, but could not make much out it.

An example program would be great point to start with this

Thanks in advance
