in thread String to Byte array

What the OP probably needs, rather than an array of integers, is a binary string of unsigned chars derived from the hex string input.

That is done using pack, not unpack:

print pack 'H*', "A21B12C212AD12FF";; ←↕┬↕↕

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
