You'll have to bear with me on this, I struggle with this sort of this.
I don't really know what using | achieves.
And a string may be bytes normally, but mine is a sequence of bits (well 
is it in my flawed understanding). I'm using Gtk::Pixbuf.pixels, if that 
helps at all.

Sorry for the stupidity.
