I took a script to translate the bitcoin address to hash160:
replaced the lines for working with the list from the file:

#Sample test taken from https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Technical_background_of_version_1_Bitcoin_addresses.
my $base58_encoded_address = "16UwLL9Risc3QfPqBUvKofHmBQ7wMtjvM";
print "\nRunning tests for bitcoin address $base58_encoded_address\n";
print "Bitcoin address is valid.  Address type: '", check_bitcoin_address($base58_encoded_address), "'.\n";
my $binary_address = decodebase58tohex($base58_encoded_address);
print "Binary hexadecimal representation is: $binary_address\n";
my $reencoded_base58 = encodebase58fromhex($binary_address);
print "Re-encoded back to Base58 is: $reencoded_base58\n\n";


my $fileSrc = 'base58.txt';
open my $fhSrc, $fileSrc or die "Could not open $fileSrc: $!";

my $fileDest = 'hex.txt';
open(my $fhDest, '>>', $fileDest) or die "Could not open file $fileDest: $!";

while( my $base58_encoded_address = <$fhSrc>)  {   
  my $binary_address = decodebase58tohex($base58_encoded_address);
  say $fhDest $binary_address, 2, 40;

close $fhSrc;
close $fhDest;

But this script stops and does not work with bech32 addresses, tell me what needs to be added so that it works with bech32. Or maybe someone has a similar script for converting addresses for the brainflayer?
