Pretty nifty!


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

P.S. Too bad my perl isn't compiled for 64 bits. I had to use the hack below, as my (un)pack-fu isn't strong. (If I were going to redo any of perls features, it would probably be to make a comprehensible pack/unpack facility.)

$ cat t.cpp #include <stdio.h> #include <string.h> union f { char s[32]; double d; } g; int main(int, char **s) { memcpy(g.s, s[1], sizeof(g)); printf("%23.16g\n", g.d); }

I think I'll play around with it to make it accept bitstrings.
