Are there any canned Python methods to convert an Integer (or Long) into a binary string in Python?
There are a myriad of dec2bin() functions out on Google... But I was hoping I could use a built-in function / library.
Python's string format method can take a format spec.
Format spec docs for Python 2
Format spec docs for Python 3
If you're looking for bin() as an equivalent to hex(), it was added in python 2.6.
