Hi !

How to work with binary numbers in python ? Is there a way to print a number 
in its binary form like we do with oct() or hex() ?

Im doing a project that i have to work with binaries and i tired of convert 
numbers to string all the time to perform some operations.

I searched about it in many places like and google, but not found 
anything useful.

Thats why im asking this.

And another question... if python has not a way to do this, why i let me use 
oct(), hex() and not bin() ?

Thanks for the help !
