I would note that the ps2ascii application which is installed as part of the pstotext package does also include PDF to ASCII conversion (although the manual page does note that this application does not consider font encoding and cannot handle kerning particularly well) - If there is a requirement for a Perl implementation of this solution, the source package for this application may be enlightening.

 

perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001000000000'"

[Corion]: Huh. I wasn't aware that you cannot segregate Python 2 and Python 3 modules... Hopefully Perl 6 module use C6AN and thus avoid the problem...
[hippo]: I very much hope so.
[moritz]: there are already some (very few) Perl 6 modules on CPAN, but in a way that the p5 indexer avoids them
[hippo]: It's confusing enough to have the Perl6:: namespace which isn't for Perl6 but for features from that ported into Perl.
