How do I convert a string (alphanumeric) to binary and then back again?

e.g. $string = "a2?76574=ghgh"

I take it you use pack to convert into binary and then unpack to convert the other way, I have tried this and cant get the syntax right.  Any ideas?

$binary = unpack'b*',$string;
$string = pack'b*',$binary;
