I was considering using map(), but I figured I should only use pack() and unpack() (I could also have used chr() in place of pack('C',...)).

There were certain templates that I ignored for one reason or another. The 'P' and 'p' templates would probably only produce random data, and the 'w' template is only available on newer versions of Perl. Also, the 'q' and 'Q' only work on 64-bit Perl, and the 'X' template didn't really seem to make much sense in this context.
