in reply to packing/unpacking/split/join confusion

I read a lot of messages on here already on packing and unpacking on how everyone else is having problems understanding it as well. Does anyone have a good analogy or scenario on why it's used and how it works?
There's a tutorial doc on pack/unpack that may even come with newer versions of Perl: perlpacktut
