Hi, newbie question I'm afraid, but I couldn't work out how to do this
from the help. I'm using Mathematica 5.2.
I've got a textfile containing a long list of numbers in hex. I can
read them in one by one, using e.g.
Then I would like to turn each number into a fixed-length binary
number, using something like
IntegerDigits[16^^p, 2, 27]
The problem is, this doesn't work. The argument of ^^ seems to need to
be an actual number in hex, e.g. 16^A12B3, rather than a variable.
Will be grateful for any help with this.
