# [HELP] BinaryToBase62

## Recommended Posts

i have this code

```Func (\$Binary)
\$Decimal = 0
For \$i = 1 To StringLen(\$Binary)
\$Decimal = 2^(\$i-1) * StringMid(\$Binary, StringLen(\$Binary)+1-\$i,1) + \$Decimal
Next
Return \$Decimal
EndFunc```

to convert binary number to decimal

and this code

```Func DecConvert(\$Decimal)
\$n = ""
\$Symbols = "123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
While \$Decimal > 61
\$m = Mod(\$Decimal ,63)
\$m = StringMid(\$Symbols,\$m,1)
\$n = \$m & \$n
\$Decimal = int(\$Decimal / 62)
WEnd
If \$Decimal > 9 Then
\$Decimal = StringMid(\$Symbols,\$Decimal,1)
EndIf
Return(\$Decimal & \$n)
EndFunc```

to convert Decimal to base 62

can someone help me to cobine 2 process above, instead of convert to decimal then convert to base 62 also maybe someone can give the code to convert it back from base 62 to binary

Wow. Is it just me or am I noticing a trend with your topics... Code for me please?

If you took time to understand what the code does, it should be fairly simple to make a reverse process, considering that this is just number conversion to different bases and all that.

```\$Binary = "1111"    ;example

\$Decimal = 0
For \$i = 1 To StringLen(\$Binary)
\$Decimal = 2^(\$i-1) * StringMid(\$Binary, StringLen(\$Binary)+1-\$i,1) + \$Decimal
Next
\$n = ""
\$Symbols = "123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
While \$Decimal > 61
\$m = Mod(\$Decimal ,63)
\$m = StringMid(\$Symbols,\$m,1)
\$n = \$m & \$n
\$Decimal = int(\$Decimal / 62)
WEnd
If \$Decimal > 9 Then
\$Decimal = StringMid(\$Symbols,\$Decimal,1)
EndIf

MsgBox(0,"",\$Decimal)```

Untested but seams like all you have to do is trim the func tags out to go first to decimal then to base62. Good luck from here

i try to build some aplication for my colege task that convert much text charachter to a small size char based on huffman coding.

huffman coding return a loooooong binary string, so i decide to convert it to binary number than convert it to base 62 char that more sorten, 4 digit binary can be converted to 1 digit base 16 so i think maybe 8 digit or more can be converted to 1 digit base 62, but im stuck with this

and if i use my first code if i convert 100100000110001000101001110001000011001000010100011001000011000010 binary the result is 4.16156960472392e+019 instead of 41615696047239180000

no can you notice that 4.16156960472392e+019 > 41615696047239180000 Edited by ngskicker

That the precision error telling you to notice it. The data type is too small to store the value that you want.

You're running on a Moebius strip there.

Do you mean the base-62 representation is shorter than binary? Seriously?

Ask yourself how many bits are needed to encode a single base-16 digit (which encodes a 4-bit nibble). Umm?

You won't compress over Huffman this way.

hmm...

i dont mind with bits guys, ok if you dont know my mind...

if i write 100100000110001000101001110001000011001000010100011001000011000010 in inputbox that have max input 60 char, sure it will not fit, but if i convert it to decimal 41615696047239180000, looks 66 Charachter Vs 20 Charachter, i am newbie but since 3 days ago i have learn huffman coding, i dont mind to store data in computer, i just want to write it in a short, and please JUST HELP ME WITH THIS F*CKING BINARY TO BASE 62 code if you wish,

cmon guys, i need help in converting binary to base 62, i have 2 script for your reference, in first post

I'm not coding it for you, since you don't seem interested in learning anything, just getting someone to do it for you.

But why BASE62? It doesn't fall on an even binary boundary. BASE64 (add two more symbols) would simply be 6-bit groups (as Hex is 4-bit). It would be easier to code and would run much faster than a BASE62 conversion would.

Packing is still an issue. The reason Hex is used everywhere and Octal (3-bit groups) is used almost nowhere anymore, is the packing efficiency with real world hardware. Symbols that represent 3-bit (Octal), or 6-bit (Base64) groups can't use an integer number of symbols to represent 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit values. Hex can represent them all with 2, 4, 8, or 16 symbols, with no bits left over.
