Add option/port to select how many bytes to concatenate and how to interpret endianness to "Get Data Bytes". This will enable a wider use for the node. Would give wanted data from the output list without conversion while still enabling direct 1 byte output.

Magneson,

We are thinking it might be more productive to create two new node classes: Convert Data to Integers and Convert Data to Reals, which input Binary Data and output a list of Integers/Reals. Additional inputs for the nodes would control the number of bits per integer/real (option of 8, 16, or 32) and any other factors related to encoding, such as endianness.

Would that meet your needs?
