```Hi All,

I know that there is BaseForm[a,b] to convert between bases, but I need some
more functionality.

I need to be able to convert a large integer (300 - 600 digits) long to binary,
know the number of digits (for a looping variable) and then use each individual
bit (from high bit to low bit).

For example, n = 11, so 11 base 10 = 1011 base 2.

The length = 4.

With the for loop, a test of each bit will be done (in this example 1, 0, 1, 1).

Can someone give any direction on how to do this?  Thanks ... Flip
