is there a pythonic and synthetic way (maybe some standard module) to
"pack" an integer (maybe a *VERY* big one) into a string? like this:
>>> number = 252509952
so i would like a string like '\xf0\xcf\xf0\x00'
i wrote some code to do it, so ugly i am ashamed to post :-(
i tried xdrlib, but does not quite do what i mean...
