Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-155) Number Base Conversion
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2006 10:32:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-155?page=comments#action_12428968 ] 
            
Chetan commented on MATH-155:
-----------------------------

I am not sure how this might work for arbitrary base where base may extend Base36(0-9 and
A-Z gets used up).
So atleast the convert(Base from,Base to) method call should handle base ranging from 2 -36.

> I think a maths package without a base conversion utility is quite incomplete.
> Would request you to include this feature in the package for the next release.
> From a user's perspective I would like to have a library that goes beyond the usual binary,octal,hexadecimal
conversions.
> Would really be helpful if the library is very generic so as to support
> convert(Base from,Base to) calls.
> Pls let me know what you feel about this.Currently i am on the lookout for a base conversion
class etc but haven't managed to hit upon anything that serves my purpose.
