i read in here somewhere i dunno where or remmber but here is a c++ code for converting this to that and back again. not just trying to build up my post counts. :whistle:

I recognize that code, I looked at that code 9 or 10 months ago when I was trying to figure out how to write a base converter. I didn't like how he did it. My converter can convert freely between base 2 (binary) and base 36 to any other base in that range. If Jon wants code that can do that, I can update mine as it's already using double's and only needs changed from using std::string to Variant or AString types. It needs updated anyway, when I wrote it, I barely knew what I was doing so I'm surprised it works at all (but it does)...

Mine's not too big, 2 functions. One to convert from any base to base 10, the other to convert from base 10 to anything else.

The code looks too complicated for me. There is inbuilt functionality within C++ to perform the conversions between octal, hexadecimal and decimal as well as perform a square root (actually there is also an inbuilt function in C and C++ called fabs which provides the absolute value of a floating point number).

Here is my simplified version of your code

#include <sstream>
#include <math.h>

}

The only major change I would make to function arith_value is to get rid of the goto statement.

The problem with those functions is that they are part of iostream which is part of the standard C++ library which Jon isn't using (Too much code bloat). Also, as you mentioned, you can only convert between a few specific types.
