Convert any Text to Binary using Python
1 min read
In this tutorial, I will show you how to convert text to binary or binary to text. I will also show you how it works. Let's Start!
String To Binary
def str_to_binary(text): binary = "" for char in text: binary += format(ord(char), '08b') return binary
The function will take a plain text or sentence
Then loop over each character to convert to binary and add the binary code of every character to the binary variable
format()method returns a formatted representation of the given value controlled by the format specifier. read more : format() in python
format(value, format-specifier) | in this case, this function takes per character's Unicode as value, and '08b' means 8-bit binary format specifier
ord() converts any character to its ASCII Unicode.
