```Hi Kenneth
my problem is that I need to extract every bit separately.
So I need to first bit of each number and the second and the third etc.
I want to do bit manipulation not just read the number.

But you answered my second question on how to convert a list of digits to a
binary.
So this is the second part of my problem

29> lists:concat([1,1,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0]).
"110011001010"
30> list_to_binary(lists:concat([1,1,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0])).
<<"110011001010">>
31>
binary_to_integer(list_to_binary(lists:concat([1,1,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0]))).
110011001010
32>
binary_to_integer(list_to_binary(lists:concat([1,1,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0])),
2).
3274

Too many conversations for just a simple bit manipulation.

Thank you all for your contribution.

Kind Regards
Nikolas
