in reply to XDR basic encode decode

Perl's pack() and unpack() offer partial solutions: the "N" format delivers a good fit (4 byte uint in network byte-order), but "A/*" encodes a string without extending the byte string payload length up to a multiple of 4-bytes.

Have you tried something like

my $l = length($string); $l += 3; $l >>= 2; $l <<= 2; pack("a$l", $string);

    Yeah, I'd do something like that in a routine - probably called xdr_put_str() I'm after finding whether anyone has already written wrappers like this. Thanks.
