    Eh. Really? OK, well, I would advise against this method, but I was determined to get it working using my original unpack version.. so here goes

    sub str_to_hex { my $str = shift; my @h; for my $s (split(/(....)/, unpack("H*", $str))) { if ($s ne '') { if (length($s) < 4) { $s = ("0" x (4 - int(length($s)))) . $s; } push @h, "0x" . $s; } } push @h, "0x0000" while @h < 4; return @h; } for (str_to_hex("COM7:")) { print $_ . "\n"; }

[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
[ambrus]: All with only cheap modern computers and software.
[ambrus]: Something you can have at home and your corner print shop, without a whole printing press's worth of equipment.
[ambrus]: As for TeX, I'm not trying to discourage anyone from writing carefully beautifully typeset documents, in maths or outside. But most people aren't willing to do that, and will spend only little time about the formatting,
[ambrus]: and try to leave everything else to automated systems without checking how what they write came out format-wise, and for those people, discounting the part about journals with a specific format above,
[ambrus]: just blindly recommending to use LaTeX is a bad idea now.
