Hex string to buf question
Message ID:
Hi All,

I have a string:

 > my Str $x = "1BB67AE85A";

which has the hexadecimal values I want to
add to a buffer:

 > my buf8 $y =$x.base(16));
No such method 'base' for invocant of type 'Str'.  Did you mean any of
these: 'Bag', 'Date', 'Hash', 'are', 'asec', 'hash', 'take'?
   in block <unit> at <unknown file> line 1

In other words, I want to set $y to
    0x1B 0xB6 0x7A 0xE8 0x5A

How do I do this?

Many thanks,

If I had a dime every time I didn't know
what was going on, I'd be like, "Why is
everyone giving me all these dimes?"
