Does anyone have a good binary to hex algorithm handy?
ie.

1100001010  => 30A
0011110000  => 0F0

print unpack"H*",pack"B*",'0000001100001010';
print unpack"H*",pack"B*",'0000000011110000';
printf "%x",0b1100001010;
printf "%03x",0b0011110000;

Perl code to turn characters in a string into hexadecimal ASCII codes and back again.
=====================================================================================
$string="A1B2";
$out = unpack("H*",$string);
print "Forward $out\n";
$str=pack("H*",$out);
print "Reverse $str\n";    


adding hex numbers:
--------------------
$number1 = 0x1234;
$number2 = 0xabcd;
 printf( "%x\n", $number1+$number2)

When I try

$temp = "00000000111";
            print ("TEMP = $temp\n");
            print unpack"H*",pack"B*",$temp;
exit();


The output becomes
TEMP = 00000000111
00e0

and I wanted 007

Please help,
Alex
