Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-155) Number Base Conversion
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2006 10:36:14 GMT
    [ ] 
James Carman commented on MATH-155:

What is "Base" in this API example?  Is that some new class?  Couldn't you represent the base
using a simple integer?  Also, what are you converting?  You're not passing in a value in
any way.

class etc but haven't managed to hit upon anything that serves my purpose.
