What is the purpose of this whole exercise?  I cannot tell from:
... convert a decimal number into binary variables (patterns represent
the number from 0 to 7 in binary format)
...I want to create a program where the number of variables is not
fixed and can be large

If you tell us what the ultimate goal is, you may get better advice.
