Thank you Ulrich Eckha for your code. I know one can write easily
function to achieve the objective.

If I unserstood correctly, the bitset will be something like array
which may store only 0 and 1, and not for directly writing values in
binary form.

Yes, you are right.

Infact, I wonder, why such function is not available in C++,
setbase() function may be made to accept 2 in addition to 8, 10 and
16, or even any other base valve.

Is there any specific reason, not to include base 2 in above
function, and not to provide any othere function for this need.
