sub as_byte_string { my ($self) = @_; my $hex = $self->as_hex(); $hex =~ s<\A0x><>; #Ensure that we have an even number of hex digits. if (length($hex) % 2) { substr($hex, 0, 0) = '0'; } return pack 'H*', $hex; } I’m sure there’s a more efficient means of doing this than the above! It’s useful for crypto stuff and would be great to have upstream. Thanks! -Felipe Gasper Mississauga, Ontario

Implemented as_bytes() and from_bytes() in Math::BigInt v1.999804. Currently, only big endian byte order is supported.
