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
CONVERTING FROM BASE: "
Any suggestion on how to improve the program are welcomed.

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 when he says any base he means it ,
it does base 1
AND SO ON
so the hex part isnt that impressive , the entire program is , i was with him when he did it , took him no time
yo... you dunno jack sh|t about coding a program like this so dont spam pointlessly...

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.
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.
