The next release of Rakudo with have read-int32.

To use it now you would need to build from the git repository, I think.

the perl6-native "read-int32" or native-but-experimental "unpack" are the
natural answers- they map well from problem to answer! There's a good
example of perl6's pack in this thread.

read-int32 was mentioned without an example so...

my Buf $x = Buf.new(0x00, 0xFF, 0x88, 0xAE,0x5D,0x5C,0x72);

Buf:0x<00 FF 88 AE 5D 5C 72>

> $x.read-int32(3,LittleEndian).base(0x10)

===SORRY!=== Error while compiling:

Undeclared name:

LittleEndian used at line 1

 Oh darn, need Perl6.d for read-int32 and the Endian enums! Is 6.d packaged
for general use?

Hi All,

Thank you for all the wonderful tips!  Now I have to
write them all down for my own documentation.

This is a fun one I also came up with.  Since I was already
doing bitwise shift left, I thought I might as well do
it all with bitwise operations: first bitwise shift left,
then bitwise OR to combine them.  (Yes, I played with AND
and OR gates 40 years ago.  CMOS was my favorite.)

$ p6 'my Buf $x=Buf.new(0xAE,0x5D,0x5C,0x72);
  my int32 $i=$x[3] +< 0x18  +|  $x[2] +< 0x10  +|  $x[1] +< 0x08 
+|  $x[0];

  say $x;
  say $i.base(0x10);'

Buf:0x
725C5DAE


Interesting that I did not have to put () to force the order of
operation.  "shift" came before "OR".

  The "elegant" way I'd do it, is using unpack():
https://docs.perl6.org/routine/unpack

  It's experimental, so a declaration is needed, but Buf does Blob, so
otherwise, it's straight to the point:

$ perl6 -e 'use experimental :pack; my Buf $x=Buf.new(0xAE,0x5D,0x5C,0x72);

There's probably a nicer way but I don't generally play about with this

It does involve lots of String manipulation, as I say. There's probably a
