Re: converting a number in base b to a number in base 10 using ^^ in Mathematica

The parser has does some things in evaluating 2^^101.  To get it to pass
through the parser you need to manipulate strings:


In[1]:= base2tobase10conversion[n_Integer] := 
        ToExpression[StringJoin["2^^", ToString[n]]]

In[2]:= base2tobase10conversion[101]
