wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi Perl Guru's
I am stuck with the following:
I have a large Hex string (32 Characters) which I want to bitwise AND with a large Integer. I am using the function 'hex' to convert the Hex string to an Integer. However since the number is so large Perl gives an error 'Integer overflow in hexadecimal number'. I am already using the bignum library.
Does somebody know how I can get the Integer from the large Hex number or perhaps an easier way to bitwise two large numbers?
