def read_ber(syntax = nil)
  StringIO.new(self).read_ber(syntax)
end

#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.

# File 'lib/net/ber/core_ext/string.rb', line 49

def to_ber_application_string(code)
  to_ber(0x40 + code)
end

#to_ber_bin(code = 0x04) ⇒ Object

Converts a string to a BER string but does not encode to UTF-8 first. This is required for proper representation of binary data for Microsoft Active Directory

# File 'lib/net/ber/core_ext/string.rb', line 23

def to_ber_bin(code = 0x04)
  [code].pack('C') + length.to_ber_length_encoding + self
end

#to_ber_contextspecific(code) ⇒ Object

Creates a context-specific BER string encoded value with the provided syntax code value.
