Re: list of bits to string

    This will do it:

binList = {0, 1, 1, 0, 1};

binString = ToString[binList[[1]] ];
  binString = StringJoin[binString, ToString[binaryList[[i]] ],
{i, 2, Length[binaryList]} ]

Out[124]= "01101"

But I wonder if there is a more functional approach?  Seems like there
should be.
