in reply to Re^2: I've muddled my bit and byte formats.
in thread I've muddled my bit and byte formats.

In most current programming languages, a "string" is a "string of bytes" or rather "string of characters", not a "string of bits".
The latter would be explicitly called "bitstring" (or "string of bits", for that matter).
