PostPosted: Sun Mar 14, 2004 12:20 pm   Post subject: BASE CONVERTER ANY BASE

This is a base converter that converts numbers from base 2 to base 16 and anywhere in between. It is a two ways converter therefore it will convert any number from base 16 to base 2 and any base in between.

Note if you enter a higher base than 16 or a lower base than 2 it will tell you to reenter the base. To exit the program enter 0 at the
code:
CONVERTING FROM BASE: "
prompt.

Any suggestion on how to improve the program are welcomed.

Question: Whats a base? :/
Tony

base is the value-1 up to which a single digit can go

examples:
base 2 - binary. 0 or 1
base 10 - deca, regular numbers
base 16 - hex, ..9,A,B,C,D,E,F

oh this is useful, if I could only have used it during my test of binary, octal and hex conversion.

dude when he says any base he means it ,

*EDIT* no base 1
base2
base3
base4
........
base16

so the hex part isnt that impressive , the entire program is , i was with him when he did it , took him no time , he did an awsome job PROPS TO SPORT

One mistake it doesn't do base 1, because no one uses it and it will be just a bunch of zeros. However it does work with bases:2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16.

well you could do base 1

0 = 1
00 = 2
000 = 3

I'm planning to do an improvement version which will have more graphic stuff and I'll probable go up to 32 to 64 base and I'll be sure to include base 1 Tony.

dude what was with hte flame " i made a slight mistake on hte accuracy of hte progam , by one base , the one i did for the ontest did base 1 " ........

He nd i wrotethat program at on of the contests , he finished his and i finished mine , it was a contest problem ... i know exactly ho to do it i got the 2nd highest mark in number conversion ( sport beat me ) ive been coding with him for over 2 years , and what was wrong with my post ,people were getting caught up in hte " common bases " i was lettin people know that other bases work aswell.

BACK THE HELL OFF

This is really cool but a weird thing happend:

I told it to convert from base 5 to base 12 and I input 23 as the number to be converted. Instead of erroring it converted it. I do not know if this is correct but I thought that since the number was over 5 and I was entering a number in base 5 then it shoudln't convert.

i am sorry if I am incorect because I do not fulyl understand the concept of bases yet. If I am incorect I appologize and yo can call em an idiot. Very Happy

Really usefull though.

23 is a valid number in base 5. Base 5 contains 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. If we converted it to our deciaml system, base 10, it would be around 12... I think... But yea it is a legal base 5 number.
