Hello, does anyone know how to extend Mathematica 4.0's capabilities of calculating in 36 numerical bases to any number base beyond? In general the numbers 0-9 and letters a-z yield 36 numerical expressions and that's it. To move beyond, instead of attributing 'a' to 10, 'b' to 11 and so on, it should be possible to assign these decimal expressions directly to enable quick conversion of any given number into any number base in question, let's say base 37,38,52 etc. Any assistance is highly appreciated. Thank you all. -Wolfram Oehler- __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo! Auctions - buy the things you want at great prices http://auctions.yahoo.com/
