For command writeBin("100",raw()) it answers "31 30 30 00" the last double 0 is differs from http://www.branah.com/ascii-converter there ascii codes are "31 30 30". So is it normal having double 0-s after ascii codes and what it means?

 From ?writeBin:

"|readBin| and |writeBin| read and write C-style zero-terminated 
character strings."
