Hi All,

when converting bases for large numbers, such as:

p = 11354882100554070846945886900376612381887314805411070198522440388172296396\

BaseForm[p, 16]

The output of baseform is a long (with no wrapping) string.  When one prints
this out, it gets cut off of the page.

Is there a way to be able to see the hex (and actually treat it is a number do
you can print results) output as a nicely formatted hex number?

(My main concern is to printout results for the audience).

Thank you for any input ... Wilson
