I would very strongly suggest that the user should expect Rmpz_import() to process the series of base-256 "digits" obtained by (map ord($_), split //, $str), regardless of the internal encoding of the string. So (a) is the correct result. (b) is just horrible, and is repeating the broken Unicode model that appeared in perl 5.6 and was (mostly) fixed by perl 5.8.

Your only real decision needs to be what to do for a codepoint > 0xff. Three obvious choices are: croak; treat each codepoint modulo 256, or carry the overflow into the next digit. So the string "\x40\x{150}\x60" would yield the integer value 0x615040. (I haven't looked at what endedness the function works to, but that should give you the general idea of what I mean.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
