# Decimal to any base

## Recommended Posts

With this UDF, you can convert a decimal number to any base (binary, oct, hex, base32, base64) and you can even create your own base.

```#include <Array.au3>

\$base64 = "A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,"& _
"j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,+,/"
\$base32 =  "A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z,2,3,4,5,6,7"
\$base16 =  "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F"
\$base8 = "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7"
\$base2 =  "0,1"

\$number = InputBox ( "Decimal Converter", "Enter a decimal number", "", "", -1, 100, -1, -1 )
\$bin = _Base ( \$number, \$base2 )
\$oct = _Base ( \$number, \$base8 )
\$hex = _Base ( \$number, \$base16 )
\$32 = _Base ( \$number, \$base32 )
\$64 = _Base ( \$number, \$base64 )

\$text = "Binary: "&\$bin&" -> Dec: "& _Dec(\$bin, \$base2)&@CRLF&@CRLF
\$text &= "Oct: "&\$oct&" -> Dec: "& _Dec(\$oct, \$base8)&@CRLF&@CRLF
\$text &= "Hex: "&\$hex&" -> Dec: "& _Dec(\$hex, \$base16)&@CRLF&@CRLF
\$text &= "Base 32: "&\$32&" -> Dec: "& _Dec(\$32, \$base32)&@CRLF&@CRLF
\$text &= "Base 64: "&\$64&" -> Dec: "& _Dec(\$64, \$base64)

Msgbox ( 0, "Decimal Converter", \$text )

make it case sensitive,

Base64 or the like wont work,

thanks for this code, I was coding my own when I found yours =))

( to make it easier to find here are some strings: BaseTo Base2 Dec2Base DecToBase )

I liked the idea of being able to enter any base number system as a string. So I added Base 12 and Base 60.

Base 60 being used in degrees, minutes, seconds or hours, minutes, seconds.

Then had to modify your _Dec() function for conversion of base 60 back to decimal number system.(base 10), because of the three characters per number used in the base 60 string.

I then realized it did not matter which characters were used in the base string. As long as there is equal number of characters between the commas. And, the character used in the base string also appears in the StringRegExp() function in the modified _Dec() function to be able to convert it back to base 10.

Thus, the code base string manifested.

Malkey.

well, i made this and other things far more optimized and advanced in my _Primes.au3 UDF. check it out.

Not to revive an old post, but I am having some trouble in my code, I am able to convert the text to my base104, however I am unsure how to convert it back, it seems to become corrupted when I do so, perhaps I am doing something wrong?

The code to convert:

```Global \$base104 = "H¦,He,Li,Be,B¦,C¦,N¦,O¦,F¦,Ne,Na,Mg,Al,Si,P¦,S¦,Cl,Ar,K¦,Ca,Sc,Ti,Cr,Mn,Fe,Co,Ni,Cu,Zn,Ga,Ge,As,Se,Br,Kr,Rb,Sr,Y¦,Zr,Nb,Mo,Tc,Ru,Rh,Pd,Ag,Cd,In,Sn,Sb,Te,I¦,Xe,Cs,Ba,La,Ce,Pr,Nd,Pm,Sm,Eu,Gd,Tb,Dy,Ho,Er,Tm,Yb,Lu,Hf,Ta,W¦,Re,Os,Ir,Pt,Au,Hg,Tl,Pb,Bi,Po,At,Rn,Fr,Ra,Ac,Th,Pa,U¦,Np,Pu,Am,Cm,Bk,Cf,Es,Fm,Md,No,Bh,Rg,Fl"
for \$i=1 to \$text[0]
\$number &= _Base(AscW(\$text[\$i]), \$base104)
Next```

The code to convert it back:

```\$string = StringSplit(\$string, "")
\$text = ""
for \$i=1 to \$string[0] step 2
\$text &= _dec(\$string[\$i]&\$string[\$i+1], \$base104)
Next```

(I do not know what to do with the numbers returned from _dec)
