# Re: converting numbers

hi
Ship's Log, Lt. David Stern, Stardate 280199.1148:
> OK, hex numbers are radix 16, octal radix 8, decimal radix 1.
As mentioned in an other mail, it's 10. There are no base 1 #s @all as 1^r for
all r is still 1 (besids you have always base# of digits starting with 0)
> Good. Now I can convert between hex, octal and decimal.
To extend yer knowledge ;-)
you can always do a # mod base ; # -> # div base
Which will give you digit fer digit starting with the lowest one.
(Thell me if I abreviate 2 much :)
> I guess I'll have to determine when to use each based on context.
That is easy. Hex have capital letters, octals are 3 digits and start with a \
deciaml numbers are stored in i or o, binaries are just logical. Besids these
noone in there right mind uses any and whoever starts base 7 will be shot
anyway.

Ah, can I have tea instead? A hot, black tea without any milk or sugar. :-)

Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?
Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment?
Who hath established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His son's name, if thou canst tell ?
