I am fairly new to B4A, and don't know all the clever stuff hidden away in there.

There is a serial line sending in strings of 8 ascii '1' and '0' chars, like "11100110".

I need to convert this string into an 8bit value. This could be done by extracting each char, then using its value to add 2^x to the result. This is how I would attempt it, but does B4A have a better method ?.
