in reply to Re^4: pack() returns an unusable string
in thread pack() returns an unusable string
I was also wanting to do the same thing, but replacing "H*" with "D"
That totally misses the point. I suggested using unpack "H*" as a form of serialization. You'd use in the parent and pack "H*" in the child in addition to pack "d" or pack "D" or whatever you want to test.
