( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thank you for your quick reactions ;-)
Using Math::BigInt or pack I unfortunately still get an integer overflow. I'm probably doing something wrong but don't see what. Sorry if this is to much of a newbie question.

A little more context: The hexstring comes from a switch. I want to use the hexstring to determine if a switchport is member of a specific VLAN. The code I have so far is:
my $switchPortNumber = 2; # 32 Character hex string from switch my $hexstring = hex '40000000000000000000000000000000'; my $mask = (0x80000000000000000000000000000000 >> $switchPortNumber); my $result = ($hexstring & $mask) > 0;
In this case only the first port is a member and the second port is NOT a member. Therefore the $result should be 0

If possible I would like to stick to the default Perl modules.
Thanks again for all the help so far.
