Unpack integers from a string.

This directory contains routines to unpack various sized integers (8,16,24,32 bit) from a string. The routines are a cross between string->integer with a radix of 255 and part of Perl's unpack facility. Only the unsigned routines are really necessary, the others can be synthesised from them. They are only included here for historical reasons. Note that the numbers are extracted in network (big endian) order.
