Question Perl>>working with strings

Hi I have a little problem.
Is there a command that can transform a string into Numbers (binary code)?


$stringnew=unknowncommand ($string)
print $stringnew

Result: 11100011110010001111000110101100101
or 124564534785536

Is there any command which can do this???

How is that syntax???

Please help. CREED for EVER

Well, you could always write your own method to accomplish this [duh...]. Otherwise... if i remember correctly, i think the "Wolf book" has some information about string manipulations using bit operations via perl code. I think the title is "mastering algorithms with perl", a great book btw. Go to borders or barnes&nobles or some other book store with an extensive CS section, they should have it ...

numbers to binary

printf "%b", 12;
for binary of 12 = 1100
printf "%vb", 12;
for binary of 1 and 2 = 110001.110010
printf "%vb", "test";
for binary of t.e.s.t = 1110100.1100101.1110011.1110100
