in thread how to print 'normal' string from hex string?

What is the unpack 'a*' bit for?

print pack 'H*', "4d414a523e576573742d622053544d2d31204d532d4149532843 +4c45415229";; MAJR>West-b STM-1 MS-AIS(CLEAR)

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
