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.
