I have variables whose values come as hexadecimal strings 32 characters long as a rusult of an md5 hash function to an original string. I need to convert those values into 128 bit long binary numbers.

I have been searching the forum but don't seem to be able to find a command that performs this apparently simple task in Stata. Most likely I am overlooking it. Any help?.

Thanks Luca
