      Why not use macros, for example:

#define BIN8(x) BIN___(0##x)

#define BIN___(x)                                        \
       (                                                \
       ((x / 01ul) % 010)*(2>>1) +                      \
       ((x / 010ul) % 010)*(2<<0) +                     \
       ((x / 0100ul) % 010)*(2<<1) +                    \
       ((x / 01000ul) % 010)*(2<<2) +                   \
       ((x / 010000ul) % 010)*(2<<3) +                  \
       ((x / 0100000ul) % 010)*(2<<4) +                 \
       ((x / 01000000ul) % 010)*(2<<5) +                \
       ((x / 010000000ul) % 010)*(2<<6)                 \

#define BIN16(x1,x2) \

#define BIN24(x1,x2,x3) \

#define BIN32(x1,x2,x3,x4) \

char  i1 = BIN8  (00101010);
short i2 = BIN16(10110110,11101110);
long  i3 = BIN24(10110111,00010111,01000110);
long i4 = BIN32(11101101,01101000,01010010,10111100);

It seems to be quite common among µC C compilers.  Unlike the PORTB.0

It's also perfectly legal for avr-as (OK, that's binutils, but gcc is
nothing without it):

Overcoming the compiler deficiency seems attractive. Portability is a
bit of a worry, though. I wonder if the 'C' world could be educated, in

Just curious, I've once made a patch for GCC that implements it.  This
was merely intented to be a proof of concept.  Does anyone
incidentally know whether this feature might have already been
proposed (and perhaps put down) to the GCC folks?  If not, do people
feel I should submit that patch?

In case anyone is interested:


Interested enough to take a copy for future reference. (When this
first project is delivered, I'll take a look at the compiler. :)

Thanks Jörg.
