st: Decomposing integers |

Hi, I have integer numbers of the following form: X=Sum[i=0/4](a[i]2^i)+(a[5]*2^5) where a[i] equals either 0 or 1 if i=0/4 and a[5] equals to any positive integer or 0. Given this construction I would like to find the unique combinations of a[i]'s that generated X. For example: X=22 was generated using a[1]=1, a[2]=1 and a[4]=1. So I would like to construct a local that contains the following list 0 1 1 0 1 0 X=65 was generated using a[0]=1 and a[5]=2 So in this case the local should contain 1 0 0 0 0 1 Is this possible?
