#to_ber(code = 0x04) ⇒ Object

Converts a string to a BER string. Universal octet-strings are tagged with 0x04, but other values are possible depending on the context, so we let the caller give us one.

User code should call either #to_ber_application_string or #to_ber_contextspecific.

def to_ber(code = 0x04)
  raw_string = raw_utf8_encoded
  [code].pack('C') + raw_string.length.to_ber_length_encoding + raw_string
end

#to_ber_application_string(code) ⇒ Object

Creates an application-specific BER string encoded value with the provided syntax code value.
