Programmus, ergo sum.
I code, therefore I am.

What does this mean?

I have beneath my hands a keyboard. I can touch the keyboard, and see it. But touch and sight are merely sensations of the mind. The only thing I can truly prove exists is my code, because it is abstract, it is not a sensation, yet is a product of my reasoning. Therefore it proves that I exist.

[jdporter]: one prog I have has a UI which allows to input a bit mask
[jdporter]: currently it expects the bitmask to be in the form of a hex number, e.g. 0x0101
[jdporter]: but I'd like to let the user specify it as individual bits, i.e. 0b0000000100000001
[jdporter]: there is no bit/binary equivalent of hex, right?
[jdporter]: I guess that the most direct way of doing it is with some magical incantation involving unpack or whatever
[jdporter]: let me google that for me ;-)
[jdporter]: hex points explicitly to oct, which does the job. :-D
