in thread String to Hex

Warnings? With AS Perl 5.8.7 I see no warnings with either the code I posted or with the (corrected) $num >>= 32; variant suggested by blazar. You did use bigint; didn't you?

    Rhetorical I assume, but I'll answer it anyway. No. I missed that slightly significant detail :)

    Annoyingly, I did look for use Math::BigInt;, but completely missed the presence of the pragma variant!
