# pack a long into an unsigned integer representation $bytes = pack("I", 3232235777L); # unpack bytes into 4 unsigned bytes @bytes = unpack("B4", $bytes); # print them out :) println(@bytes); # for giggles... go in reverse $bytes = pack("B4", reverse(@bytes)); $value = unpack("I", $bytes); # print out the value println($value);
