heres some example code
$nNum = 256
consolewrite(binary($nNum) & @lf)
consolewrite(binary(256) & @lf)

the first time it returns 0x000100000000000000
The second return is 0x00010000
I cant use my File transfer utility if this is not fixed. Thanks in advance!

It looks correct to me. It stores the int 256 in binary format which is 0x00000100 in hex. But here's the catch, it's stored in little-endian which is why you see it as 0x00010000. You can use this line to see how the bytes are stored little-endian:

ConsoleWrite(Binary(0xDEADBEEF) & @@CRLF)
; Prints 0xEFBEADDE

When you read it right to left, 2 characters at a time, it spells 0xDEADBEEF again showing how little-endian stores it.

I also get 0x00010000 both times so I don't see any bugs at all.
