I think it can be simplified (subject to your <256 constraint) using printf:

use warnings; use strict; print "Enter a decimal number, less than 256, to be converted to a bin +ary number: "; chomp(my $dec = <STDIN>); printf "%08b\n", $dec;

See also the FAQ:

perldoc -q convert

But, yours is an interesting use of the <=> operator.

    Toolic, thanks; and agreed, I just haven't learned the printf operator yet. (Slowly working my way through intro text by Cozens.)
