Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-155) Number Base Conversion
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2006 18:36:15 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-155?page=comments#action_12429080 ] 
            
Remi Arntzen commented on MATH-155:
-----------------------------------

One system of radix conversion that is not currently supported by the base Java library's
and the Commons is radix conversion for floating point numbers.

Hexadecimal support for floating point numbers is given by Double.toHexString(double), however
support for additional floating point radix's could be helpful/entertaining.

> 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.
