Dear Lazyweb, Perl unpack question

So I have a string that has a binary data structure in it, and I want to use Perl's unpack() on it

The binary structure is a 32bit int, followed by N 8 byte chunks. And I don't have quadwords in this build of Perl, so I cant treat them as 64bit ints.

And the following unpack string doesnt work: "L(a8)*".

What would the correct unpack string be?
