How do I convert bits into ints?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

To turn a string of 1s and 0s like 10110110 into a scalar containing its binary value, use the pack() function (documented in pack):

    $decimal = pack('B8', '10110110');

Here's an example of going the other way:

    $binary_string = join('', unpack('B*', "\x29"));

LanX starts googling the punch line ...
[choroba]: suddenly, a weird noise can be heard, and the conductor stops them
[choroba]: (sorry, was interrupted by a call)
[choroba]: What was that? asks he
[choroba]: and the triangle player says, "That was me. It's written here in the score"
[choroba]: and shows a bar with a note "ohne Triangel"
[choroba]: where "ohne" means "will bend" in Czech
[LanX]: one-day-the- triangle-player-of -an-orchestra-gets -very-sick xD
[choroba]: :)
