dword to string

The following gives me a DWORD from a string.

DWORD d = strtoul( "10011001100110011001100110011001", 0, 2 );  

Is there a function out there gives me a string from a DWORD? I want the string (of length 32)to just consist of 1s and zeros.

Try itoa, and make sure your buffer is long enough to handle it:

char buffer[35];
DWORD d = 124324;

itoa( d, buffer, 2 );

Although itoa isn't part of the standard, many environments offer it, including visual studio, AFAIK.

Here ya go - this is what you need:

It's _itoa, not itoa - and it does what you want (see the example at the bottom with radix = 2).

hi,
theres not such function, but it is an easy to write


void dw2bin (unsigned long n, char *s) {
      s[32] = '\0' ;
    for (int i = 31; i >= 0; i--)
            if (n >= (1u << i)) {
                  s[31-i] = '1' ;
                  n -= (1u << i) ;
            } else
                  s[31-i] = '0' ;
}

Going to accept skypalae's answer - the _atoi function was almost there, but it didn't give me all the leading zeros...

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <windows.h>            
using namespace std;
void dw2bin (unsigned long n, char *s);

void main( void )
{
   char buffer[32];
   string st = "00000000000000010000000000000001";
//   string st = "10000001000000010000000100000001";
       DWORD dw= strtoul( st.c_str(), 0, 2 );

   _itoa( dw, buffer, 2  );
   string st2 = buffer;
   cout << st<<endl;
   cout << st2<<endl;
   cout << dw<<endl;
   cout << buffer<<endl;
   dw2bin(dw, buffer);
   cout << buffer<<endl;
   string st3 = buffer;
   cout << st3<<endl;
}
void dw2bin (unsigned long n, char *s) {
     s[32] = '\0' ;
    for (int i = 31; i >= 0; i--)
          if (n >= (1u << i)) {
               s[31-i] = '1' ;
               n -= (1u << i) ;
          } else
               s[31-i] = '0' ;
}

Gives me the output..
