Hello,

I'm trying to find a way to convert an integer (8-bits long for
starters) and converting them to a list, e.g.:

num = 255
numList = [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1]

with the first element of the list being the least significant, so
that i can keep appending to that list without having to worry about
the size of the integer. I need to do this because some of the
function call can return a 2 lots of 32-bit numbers. I have to find a
way to transport this in a list... or is there a better way?
