in thread Bit by a Hex String

$num1=Math::BigInt->new("0x".$source);

Ah, I didn't know you could do that. The Math::BigInt manual page says:

Input Input values to these routines may be either Math::Big- Int objects or strings of the form "/^[+-]?[\d]+\.?[\d]*E?[+-]?[\d]*$/".

    Neither did I

    I only tried it after seeing this in the documentation:

    Examples for converting: my $x = Math::BigInt->new('0b1'.'01' x 123); print "bin: ",$x->as_bin()," hex:",$x->as_hex()," dec: ",$x,"\n";
