I have following code
my $abc = 10;
printf IN "%c", $abc;
write_file( 'c:/temp/text1.bin', pack ('C*',$abc) ) ;
I expect (Or i am not aware) that text1.bin and text.bin file content is same. When I open text.bin in the hex editor I see '0A' which is correct. I want to convert the perl scalar into binary values and store in a file. But text1.bin content is '0D 0A' which is not i want.
What is the pack format for printf's "%c" ?
Sorry, I could not find by myself. If you could enlighten me with some background documents, It would be a great help. Thank You.
P.S: I am new to bit manipulation in perl.
