Number base conversion is when you express a stored integer in an integer base, such as in octal (base 8) or binary (base 2). It also is involved when you take a string representing a number in a given base and convert it to the stored integer form. Normally, a stored integer is in binary, but that's typically invisible to the user, who normally enters or sees stored integers as decimal.

;Task: Write a function (or identify the built-in function) which is passed a non-negative integer to convert, and another integer representing the base.

It should return a string containing the digits of the resulting number, without leading zeros except for the number '''0''' itself.

For the digits beyond 9, one should use the lowercase English alphabet, where the digit '''a''' = 9+1, '''b''' = a+1, etc.

For example: the decimal number '''26''' expressed in base '''16''' would be '''1a'''.

Write a second function which is passed a string and an integer base, and it returns an integer representing that string interpreted in that base.

The programs may be limited by the word size or other such constraint of a given language. There is no need to do error checking for negatives, bases less than 2, or inappropriate digits.

Ada provides built-in capability to convert between all bases from 2 through 16. This task requires conversion for bases up to 36. The following program demonstrates such a conversion using an iterative solution.

```with Ada.Text_Io; use Ada.Text_Io;

procedure Number_Base_Conversion is
Max_Base : constant := 36;
subtype Base_Type is Integer range 2..Max_Base;
Num_Digits : constant String := "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz";
Invalid_Digit : exception;

function To_Decimal(Value : String; Base : Base_Type) return Integer is
Result : Integer := 0;
Decimal_Value : Integer;
begin
for I in reverse Value'range loop
Decimal_Value := Index(Num_Digits, Value(I..I)) - 1;
if Decimal_Value < 0 then
raise Invalid_Digit;
end if;
Result := Result + (Base**Radix_Offset * Decimal_Value);
end loop;
return Result;
end To_Decimal;

function To_Base(Value : Natural; Base : Base_Type) return String is
Result : Unbounded_String := Null_Unbounded_String;
Temp : Natural := Value;
Base_Digit : String(1..1);
begin
if Temp = 0 then
return "0";
end if;
while Temp > 0 loop
Base_Digit(1) := Num_Digits((Temp mod Base) + 1);
if Result = Null_Unbounded_String then
Append(Result, Base_Digit);
else
Insert(Source => Result,
Before => 1,
New_Item => Base_Digit);
end if;
Temp := Temp / Base;
end loop;
end To_Base;

begin
Put_Line("26 converted to base 16 is " & To_Base(26, 16));
Put_line("1a (base 16) is decimal" & Integer'image(To_Decimal("1a", 16)));
end Number_Base_Conversion;
```

ALGOL 68

Built in or standard distribution routines

{{works with|ALGOL 68|Standard - no extensions to language used}} {{works with|ALGOL 68G|Any - tested with release mk15-0.8b.fc9.i386}} The ''formatted transput'' in '''ALGOL 68''' uses the '''format''' type ('''mode'''). This '''format''' type has many similarities with modern ''regular expressions'' and can be used to convert '''string''' patterns to and from many of the built in types ('''mode'''s) in ALGOL 68. Here is an example converting a numbers base.

```INT base = 16, from dec = 26;
BITS to bits;

FORMAT hex repr = \$n(base)r2d\$;

FILE f; STRING str;

associate(f, str);
putf(f, (hex repr, BIN from dec));
print(("Hex: ",str, new line));

reset(f);
getf(f, (hex repr, to bits));
print(("Int: ",ABS to bits, new line))
```

Output:

```
Hex: 1a
Int:         +26

```

Note that the only conversions "officially" available are for the bases 2r, 4r, 8r and 16r. But [[ALGOL 68G]] allows formatting for all numbers in the range 2r to 16r.

Implementation example

Handles signed and unsigned numbers from all bases.

AppleScript

{{Trans|JavaScript}} For more flexibility with digit variants (upper and lower case hex, digits in other languages/scripts etc) we can define '''toBase'''(intBase, n) in terms of a more general '''inBaseDigits'''(strDigits, n) which derives the base from the number of digits to be used:

```-- toBase :: Int -> Int -> String
on toBase(intBase, n)
if (intBase < 36) and (intBase > 0) then
inBaseDigits(items 1 thru intBase of "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", n)
else
"not defined for base " & (n as string)
end if
end toBase

-- inBaseDigits :: String -> Int -> [String]
on inBaseDigits(strDigits, n)
set intBase to length of strDigits

script nextDigit
on |λ|(residue)
set {divided, remainder} to quotRem(residue, intBase)
if divided > 0 then
{just:(item (remainder + 1) of strDigits), new:divided, nothing:false}
else
{nothing:true}
end if

Common Lisp

```(parse-integer "1a" :radix 16) ; returns multiple values: 26, 2
(write-to-string 26 :base 16) ; also "1A"
```

Alternative implementation using FORMAT's ~R directive and #nR reader macro

```(defun decimal-to-base-n (number &key (base 16))
(format nil (format nil "~~~dr" base) number))

(defun base-n-to-decimal (number &key (base 16))
(read-from-string (format nil "#~dr~d" base number)))
```

Yet another approach uses FORMAT's ~R in conjunction with ~V for passing arguments to directives (this assumes input as string)

```(defun change-base (number input-base output-base)
(format nil "~vr" output-base (parse-integer number :radix input-base)))

Forth

Forth has a global user variable, BASE, which determines the radix used for parsing, interpretation, and printing of integers. This can handle bases from 2-36, but there are two words to switch to the most popular bases, DECIMAL and HEX.

```42 dup
2 base !
.   \ 101010
hex
.   \ 2A
decimal
```

Many variants of Forth support literals in some bases, such as hex, using a prefix

```\$ff .   \ 255
```

Go

The standard `strconv` package functions `ParseInt`, `ParseUint`, `FormatInt`, `FormatUint`, and the standard `math/big` package method `SetString`, all accept a base argument `2 ≤ base ≤ 36`.

Note, there is no equivalent formatting function provided for a `big.Int`, only the standard bases are available via `fmt` integer formatting verbs (binary `%b`, octal `%o`, decimal `%d`, and hexidecimal `%x` or `%X`).

```package main

import (
"fmt"
"math/big"
"strconv"
)

func main () {
s := strconv.FormatInt(26, 16) // returns the string "1a"
fmt.Println(s)

i, err := strconv.ParseInt("1a", 16, 64) // returns the integer (int64) 26
if err == nil {
fmt.Println(i)
}
b, ok := new(big.Int).SetString("1a", 16) // returns the big integer 26
if ok {
fmt.Println(b)
}
}
```

Groovy

Solution:

```def radixParse = { s, radix -> Integer.parseInt(s, radix) }
```

Test Program:

```def numString = '101'
assert value == radix**2 + 1
printf ("         %3s (%2d) == %4d (10)\n", numString, radix, value)

assert valM2str == biggestDigit + biggestDigit
printf ("%3s (%2d) - 2 (10) == %4s (%2d)\n", numString, radix, valM2str, radix)
}
```

Using built-in functions to convert integer into string, and vice versa, at any base up to 16:

Numeric.showIntAtBase 16 Char.intToDigit 42 ""
"2a"
42
```

It's actually more useful to represent digits internally as numbers instead of characters, because then one can define operations that work directly on this representation.

So conversion to and from digits represented as 0-9 and a-z is done in an additional step.

import Data.List
import Data.Char

toBase :: Int -> Int -> [Int]
toBase b v = toBase' [] v where
toBase' a 0 = a
toBase' a v = toBase' (r:a) q where (q,r) = v `divMod` b

fromBase :: Int -> [Int] -> Int
fromBase b ds = foldl' (\n k -> n * b + k) 0 ds

convert n | n < 10    = chr (n + ord '0')
| otherwise = chr (n + ord 'a' - 10)

convert c | isDigit c = ord c - ord '0'
| isUpper c = ord c - ord 'A' + 10
| isLower c = ord c - ord 'a' + 10
```

Example:

*Main> toAlphaDigits \$ toBase 16 \$ 42
"2a"
*Main> fromBase 16 \$ fromAlphaDigits \$ "2a"
42
```

Or, to allow for digit variants like upper case vs lower case Hexadecimal, we can express our conversion function(s) in terms of a more general '''inBaseDigits''' function which, given an ordered list of digits as its first argument, returns an Int -> String unfold function. (The base is the length of the digit list).

If we want to assume a default character set, then a general '''toBase'''  (Int -> Int -> String) can be also be derived from '''inBaseDigits'''.

import Data.List (unfoldr)
import Data.Char (intToDigit)

inBaseDigits :: [Char] -> Int -> String
inBaseDigits ds n =
let base = length ds
in reverse \$
unfoldr
(\x ->
(if x > 0
then let (d, r) = quotRem x base
in Just (ds !! r, d)
else Nothing))
n

inLowerHex :: Int -> String
inLowerHex = inBaseDigits "0123456789abcdef"

inUpperHex :: Int -> String
inUpperHex = inBaseDigits "0123456789ABCDEF"

inBinary :: Int -> String
inBinary = inBaseDigits "01"

inOctal :: Int -> String
inOctal = inBaseDigits "01234567"

inDevanagariDecimal :: Int -> String
inDevanagariDecimal = inBaseDigits "०१२३४५६७८९"

inHinduArabicDecimal :: Int -> String
inHinduArabicDecimal = inBaseDigits "٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩"

toBase :: Int -> Int -> String
toBase intBase n =
if (intBase < 36) && (intBase > 0)
then inBaseDigits (take intBase (['0' .. '9'] ++ ['a' .. 'z'])) n
else []

There are several conversion routines for bases in the IPL, however, none returns the input radix form.

Output:
```txt

ns=16r5a -> n=90 -> 12r76
ns=16r5a -> n=90 -> 16r5a

ns=-12r1a -> n=-22 -> -12r1a
ns=-12r1a -> n=-22 -> -16r16
```

## J

J supports direct specification of native precision integers by base. The numbers are expressed as the base to be used (using base 10), the letter b, followed by the number itself.  Following the initial letter b, other (lower case) letters represent "digts" 10 (a) through 35 (z), as in these examples:

```j
2b100 8b100 10b_100 16b100 36b100 36bzy
4 64 _100 256 1296 1294
```

Additionally, J has primitives [http://www.jsoftware.com/help/dictionary/d401.htm #.] and [http://www.jsoftware.com/help/dictionary/d402.htm #:] for dealing with base conversion issues.

Here are programs for conversion of numeric values to literals, and of literals to numbers:

```j
numerals=: '0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
baseNtoL=: numerals {~ #.inv
baseLtoN=: [ #. numerals i. ]
```

Examples of use:

```j
2 baseNtoL 100 101
1100100
1100101
16 baseNtoL 26
1a
36 baseLtoN 'zy'
1294
```

These may be combined so the conversion performed is derived from the type of argument received.

```j
base=: baseNtoL :: baseLtoN

16 base 'aa'
170
16 base 170
aa
```

## Java

for long's:

```java
public static long backToTen(String num, int oldBase){
return Long.parseLong(num, oldBase); //takes both uppercase and lowercase letters
}

public static String tenToBase(long num, int newBase){
return Long.toString(num, newBase);//add .toUpperCase() for capital letters
}
```

for BigInteger's:

```java
public static BigInteger backToTenBig(String num, int oldBase){
return new BigInteger(num, oldBase); //takes both uppercase and lowercase letters
}

public static String tenBigToBase(BigInteger num, int newBase){
return num.toString(newBase);//add .toUpperCase() for capital letters
}
```

## JavaScript

### ES5

```javascript
k = 26
s = k.toString(16) //gives 1a
i = parseInt('1a',16) //gives 26
//optional special case for hex:
i = +('0x'+s) //hexadecimal base 16, if s='1a' then i=26.
```

Converts a number of arbitrary length from any base to any base
Limitation: Any base or number that causes accumulator to overflow will lose precision!!
Debugging or following the process is easy as it is kept in the expected base string format and order.

```javascript

var baselist = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", listbase = [];
for(var i = 0; i < baselist.length; i++) listbase[baselist[i]] = i; // Generate baselist reverse
function basechange(snumber, frombase, tobase)
{
var i, t, to = new Array(Math.ceil(snumber.length * Math.log(frombase) / Math.log(tobase))), accumulator;
if(1 < frombase < baselist.length || 1 < tobase < baselist.length) console.error("Invalid or unsupported base!");
while(snumber[0] == baselist[0] && snumber.length > 1) snumber = snumber.substr(1); // Remove leading zeros character
console.log("Number is", snumber, "in base", frombase, "to base", tobase, "result should be",
parseInt(snumber, frombase).toString(tobase));
for(i = snumber.length - 1, inexp = 1; i > -1; i--, inexp *= frombase)
for(accumulator = listbase[snumber[i]] * inexp, t = to.length - 1; accumulator > 0 || t >= 0; t--)
{
accumulator += listbase[to[t] || 0];
to[t] = baselist[(accumulator % tobase)  || 0];
accumulator = Math.floor(accumulator / tobase);
}
}
console.log("Result:", basechange("zzzzzzzzzz", 36, 10));
```

Using BigInteger, can convert any base.

```javascript

// Tom Wu jsbn.js http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~tjw/jsbn/
var baselist = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", listbase = [];
for(var i = 0; i < baselist.length; i++) listbase[baselist[i]] = i; // Generate baselist reverse
function baseconvert(snumber, frombase, tobase) // String number in base X to string number in base Y, arbitrary length, base
{
var i, t, to, accum = new BigInteger(), inexp = new BigInteger('1', 10), tb = new BigInteger(),
fb = new BigInteger(), tmp = new BigInteger();
console.log("Number is", snumber, "in base", frombase, "to base", tobase, "result should be",
frombase < 37 && tobase < 37 ? parseInt(snumber, frombase).toString(tobase) : 'too large');
while(snumber[0] == baselist[0] && snumber.length > 1) snumber = snumber.substr(1); // Remove leading zeros
tb.fromInt(tobase);
fb.fromInt(frombase);
for(i = snumber.length - 1, to = new Array(Math.ceil(snumber.length * Math.log(frombase) / Math.log(tobase))); i > -1; i--)
{
accum = inexp.clone();
accum.dMultiply(listbase[snumber[i]]);
for(t = to.length - 1; accum.compareTo(BigInteger.ZERO) > 0 || t >= 0; t--)
{
tmp.fromInt(listbase[to[t]] || 0);
to[t] = baselist[accum.mod(tb).intValue()];
accum = accum.divide(tb);
}
inexp = inexp.multiply(fb);
}
while(to[0] == baselist[0] && to.length > 1) to = to.slice(1); // Remove leading zeros
}

```

### ES6

For more flexibility with digit variants (upper and lower case hex, digits in other languages/scripts etc) we can define '''toBase'''(intBase, n) in terms of a more general '''inBaseDigits'''(strDigits, n) which derives the base from the number of digits to be used.

```JavaScript
(() => {
'use strict';

// toBase :: Int -> Int -> String
const toBase = (intBase, n) =>
intBase < 36 && intBase > 0 ?
inBaseDigits('0123456789abcdef'.substr(0, intBase), n) : [];

// inBaseDigits :: String -> Int -> [String]
const inBaseDigits = (digits, n) => {
const intBase = digits.length;

return unfoldr(maybeResidue => {
const [divided, remainder] = quotRem(maybeResidue.new, intBase);

return {
valid: divided > 0,
value: digits[remainder],
new: divided
};
}, n)
.reverse()
.join('');
};

// GENERIC FUNCTIONS

// unfoldr :: (b -> Maybe (a, b)) -> b -> [a]
const unfoldr = (mf, v) => {
var xs = [];
return (until(
m => !m.valid,
m => {
const m2 = mf(m);
return (
xs = xs.concat(m2.value),
m2
);
}, {
valid: true,
value: v,
new: v,
}
), xs);
};

// curry :: ((a, b) -> c) -> a -> b -> c
const curry = f => a => b => f(a, b);

// until :: (a -> Bool) -> (a -> a) -> a -> a
const until = (p, f, x) => {
let v = x;
while (!p(v)) v = f(v);
return v;
}

// quotRem :: Integral a => a -> a -> (a, a)
const quotRem = (m, n) => [Math.floor(m / n), m % n];

// show :: a -> String
const show = x => JSON.stringify(x, null, 2);

// OTHER FUNCTIONS DERIVABLE FROM inBaseDigits

// inLowerHex :: Int -> String
const inLowerHex = curry(inBaseDigits)('0123456789abcdef');

/// inUpperHex :: Int -> String
const inUpperHex = curry(inBaseDigits)('0123456789ABCDEF');

// inOctal :: Int -> String
const inOctal = curry(inBaseDigits)('01234567');

// inDevanagariDecimal :: Int -> String
const inDevanagariDecimal = curry(inBaseDigits)('०१२३४५६७८९');

// TESTS
// testNumber :: [Int]
const testNumbers = [255, 240];

return testNumbers.map(n => show({
binary: toBase(2, n),
base5: toBase(5, n),
hex: toBase(16, n),
upperHex: inUpperHex(n),
octal: inOctal(n),
devanagariDecimal: inDevanagariDecimal(n)
}));
})();
```

```Lua
function dec2base (base, n)
local result, digit = ""
while n > 0 do

if digit > 9 then digit = string.char(digit + 87) end
n = math.floor(n / base)

local x = dec2base(16, 26)
print(x)                    --> 1a
print(tonumber(x, 16))      --> 26

A real base conversion example: {{trans|Haskell}}

```ocaml
let to_base b v =
let rec to_base' a v =
if v = 0 then
a
else
to_base' (v mod b :: a) (v / b)
in
to_base' [] v

let to_alpha_digits ds =
let buf = Buffer.create (List.length ds) in
List.iter (fun i -> Buffer.add_char buf (to_alpha_digit i)) ds;
Buffer.contents buf

let from_alpha_digit c = match c with

let from_alpha_digits s =
let result = ref [] in
String.iter (fun c -> result := from_alpha_digit c :: !result) s;

uses
Math, SysUtils;

const
alphanum = '0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz';

function ToDecimal(base: integer; instring: string): integer;
var
inlength, i, n: integer;
begin
ToDecimal := 0;
inlength := length(instring);
for i := 1 to inlength do
begin
n := pos(instring[i], alphanum) - 1;

end;
ToBase := trimLeft(ToBase);
end;

begin
writeln ('1A: ', ToDecimal(16, '1a'));
writeln ('26: ', ToBase(16, 26));
end.

```

Output:

## Perl

For base 2 and 16, we can do this entirely with language features:

```perl
sub to2  { sprintf "%b", shift; }
sub to16 { sprintf "%x", shift; }
sub from2  { unpack("N", pack("B32", substr("0" x 32 . shift, -32))); }
sub from16 { hex(shift); }
```

Small functions will handle arbitrary base conversions for bases 2-36:

```perl
sub base_to {
my(\$n,\$b) = @_;
my \$s = "";
while (\$n) {
\$s .= ('0'..'9','a'..'z')[\$n % \$b];
\$n = int(\$n/\$b);
}
scalar(reverse(\$s));
}
sub base_from {
my(\$n,\$b) = @_;
my \$t = 0;
for my \$c (split(//, lc(\$n))) {
\$t = \$b * \$t + index("0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", \$c);
}
\$t;
}
```

There are a plethora of modules that perform base conversion.

The core [https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/perl/ext/POSIX/lib/POSIX.pod POSIX] module includes strtol (and strtoul) which is simple and fast, but only does conversions from a base.  On some platforms the function may be limited to 32-bit even with a 64-bit Perl.

```perl
use POSIX;
my (\$num, \$n_unparsed) = strtol('1a', 16);
\$n_unparsed == 0 or die "invalid characters found";
print "\$num\n"; # prints "26"
```

The [https://metacpan.org/pod/ntheory ntheory] module includes functions that will perform base conversion, and is fast.  It supports bases up to 36 and bigints.{{libheader|ntheory}}

```perl
use ntheory qw/fromdigits todigitstring/;
my \$n   = 65261;
my \$n16 = todigitstring(\$n, 16) || 0;
my \$n10 = fromdigits(\$n16, 16);
say "\$n \$n16 \$n10";  # prints "65261 feed 65261"
```

Other modules include but are not limited to:

* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::BaseCalc Math::BaseCalc]
* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::Int2Base Math::Int2Base]
* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::NumberBase Math::NumberBase]
* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Convert::AnyBase Convert::AnyBase]
* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::BaseCnv Math::BaseCnv]
* [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::BaseConvert Math::BaseConvert]

The last two are ''much'' slower than the others or the simple functions above, but may have extra features.  Math::Base::Convert and Convert::BaseN are currently not recommended.

The module [https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::Fleximal Math::Fleximal] not only does very arbitrary base conversion, but allows computations in different bases.

## Perl 6

```perl6
sub from-base(Str \$str, Int \$base) {
+":\$base\<\$str>";
}

sub to-base(Real \$num, Int \$base) {
\$num.base(\$base);
}
```

These work on any real type including integer types.

## Phix

```Phix
-- demo\rosetta\Convert_base.exw
function to_base(integer i, integer base)
integer c
sequence s = ""
while i>0 do
c = remainder(i,base)
if c<10 then
c += '0'
else
c += 'a'-10
end if
s = prepend(s,c)
i = floor(i/base)
end while

if length(s) = 0 then
s = "0"
end if

return s
end function

function from_base(string s, integer base)
integer res = 0, c
for i=1 to length(s) do
c = s[i]
if c>='0' and c<='9' then
c -= '0'
else
c -= 'a'-10
end if
res = res*base+c
end for
return res
end function

?to_base(256,16)
?from_base("100",16)
```

{{out}}

```txt

```

## PHP

PHP has a base_convert() function that directly converts between strings of one base and strings of another base:

```php
base_convert("26", 10, 16); // returns "1a"
```

If you want to convert a string to an integer, the intval() function optionally takes a base argument when given a string:

```php
intval("1a", 16); // returns 26
```

To go the other way around, I guess you can use base_convert() again; I am unaware of a better way:

```php
base_convert(26, 10, 16); // returns "1a"
```

In addition, there are specialized functions for converting certain bases:

```php
// converts int to binary string
decbin(26); // returns "11010"
// converts int to octal string
decoct(26); // returns "32"
// converts int to hex string
dechex(26); // returns "1a"
// converts binary string to int
bindec("11010"); // returns 26
// converts octal string to int
octdec("32"); // returns 26
// converts hex string to int
hexdec("1a"); // returns 26
```

## PL/I

```PL/I

convert: procedure (N, base) returns (character (64) varying) recursive;
declare N fixed binary (31), base fixed binary;
declare table (0:15) character (
'0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7',
'8', '9', 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f');
declare s character (64) varying;

if N = 0 then return ('');

s = convert(N/base, base);
return (s || table(mod(N, base)) );
end convert;

```

## PicoLisp

```PicoLisp
(de numToString (N Base)
(default Base 10)
(let L NIL
(loop
(let C (% N Base)
(and (> C 9) (inc 'C 39))
(push 'L (char (+ C `(char "0")))) )
(T (=0 (setq N (/ N Base)))) )
(pack L) ) )

(de stringToNum (S Base)
(default Base 10)
(let N 0
(for C (chop S)
(when (> (setq C (- (char C) `(char "0"))) 9)
(dec 'C 39) )
(setq N (+ C (* N Base))) )
N ) )

(prinl (numToString 26 16))
(prinl (stringToNum "1a" 16))
(prinl (numToString 123456789012345678901234567890 36))
```

Output:

```txt
"1a"
26
"byw97um9s91dlz68tsi"
```

## Pop11

Pop11 can input and output routines can use any base up to 36
runs i/o routine temporarly setting 'pop_pr_radix' to given
value.  'sprintf' procedure instead of printing returns string.
So, to convert number to given value we just compose
built-in procedures:

```pop11
define number_to_base(n, base);
enddefine;
```

In input base optionally preceeds the number, for example
8:15 is 13.  So, to convert string in given base we need
to prepend base prefix and read number from string:

```pop11
define string_in_base_to_number(s, base);
incharitem(stringin(base >< ':' >< s))();
enddefine;
```

## PureBasic

```PureBasic
Global alphanum\$ = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" ;36 digits
#maxIntegerBitSize = SizeOf(Integer) * 8

Procedure toDecimal(base, s.s)
Protected length, i, toDecimal

length = Len(s)
If length: toDecimal = FindString(alphanum\$, Left(s, 1), 1) - 1: EndIf

For i = 2 To length
toDecimal * base + FindString(alphanum\$, Mid(s, i, 1), 1) - 1
Next
EndProcedure

Procedure.s toBase(base, number)
Protected i, rem, toBase.s{#maxIntegerBitSize} = Space(#maxIntegerBitSize)

For i = #maxIntegerBitSize To 1 Step -1
rem = number % base
PokeC(@toBase + i - 1, PeekC(@alphanum\$ + rem))
If number < base: Break: EndIf
number / base
Next
ProcedureReturn LTrim(toBase)
EndProcedure

If OpenConsole()
PrintN( Str(toDecimal(16, "1a")) )

PrintN( toBase(16, 26) )

Print(#CRLF\$ + #CRLF\$ + "Press ENTER to exit")
Input()
CloseConsole()
EndIf
```

Sample output:

```txt
26
1a
```

## Python

Converting from string to number is easy:

```python
i = int('1a',16)  # returns the integer 26
```

Converting from number to string is harder:

```python
digits = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
def baseN(num,b):
return (((num == 0) and  "0" )
or ( baseN(num // b, b).lstrip("0")
+ digits[num % b]))

# alternatively:
def baseN(num,b):
if num == 0: return "0"
result = ""
while num != 0:
num, d = divmod(num, b)
result += digits[d]
return result[::-1] # reverse

k = 26
s = baseN(k,16) # returns the string 1a
```

## R

```R

int2str <- function(x, b) {
if(x==0) return("0")
if(x<0) return(paste0("-", base(-x,b)))

map <- c(as.character(0:9), letters)
res <- ""
while (x>0) {
res <- c(map[x %% b + 1], res)
x <- x %/% b
}
return(paste(res, collapse=""))
}

str2int <- function(s, b) {
map <- c(as.character(0:9), letters)
s <- strsplit(s,"")[[1]]
res <- sapply(s, function(x) which(map==x))
res <- as.vector((res-1) %*% b^((length(res)-1):0))
return(res)
}

## example: convert 255 to hex (ff):
int2str(255, 16)

## example: convert "1a" in base 16 to integer (26):
str2int("1a", 16)

```

## Racket

## REXX

Instead of writing two separate routines, only one was written to handle both tasks.

This routine was ripped out from a bigger version of mine that allowed any number as input, including decimal fractions (or whatever base).

Illegal numerals/digits are detected as well as illegal (or unsupported) bases.

No   ''number-conversion''   BIFs   (Built-In Functions)   were used in this REXX program.

## Ruby

This converts strings from any base to any base up to base 36.

```ruby
class String
def convert_base(from, to)
Integer(self, from).to_s(to)
# self.to_i(from).to_s(to) #if you don't want exceptions
end
end

# first three taken from TCL
p "12345".convert_base(10, 23) # => "107h"
p "107h".convert_base(23, 7) # =>"50664"
p "50664".convert_base(7, 10) # =>"12345"
p "ff".convert_base(15, 10) # => ArgumentError

## Swift

Converting integer to string:

```swift
println(String(26, radix: 16)) // prints "1a"
```

Converting string to integer:

```swift
import Darwin
func string2int(s: String, radix: Int) -> Int {
// there is also strtoul() for UInt, and strtoll() and strtoull() for Int64 and UInt64, respectively
}
println(string2int("1a", 16)) // prints "26"
```

## Tcl

Tcl `scan` and `format` commands can convert between decimal, octal and hexadecimal, but this solution can convert between any arbitrary bases.

```tcl
namespace eval baseconvert {
variable chars "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
namespace export baseconvert
}
proc baseconvert::dec2base {n b} {
variable chars
expr {\$n == 0 ? 0
: "[string trimleft [dec2base [expr {\$n/\$b}] \$b] 0][string index \$chars [expr {\$n%\$b}]]"
}
}
proc baseconvert::base2dec {n b} {
variable chars
set sum 0
foreach char [split \$n ""] {
set d [string first \$char [string range \$chars 0 [expr {\$b - 1}]]]
if {\$d == -1} {error "invalid base-\$b digit '\$char' in \$n"}
set sum [expr {\$sum * \$b + \$d}]
}
return \$sum
}
proc baseconvert::baseconvert {n basefrom baseto} {
dec2base [base2dec \$n \$basefrom] \$baseto
}

namespace import baseconvert::baseconvert
baseconvert 12345 10 23 ;# ==> 107h
baseconvert 107h 23 7   ;# ==> 50664
baseconvert 50664 7 10  ;# ==> 12345
```

## Ursala

A function parameterized by the base b performs the conversion in each direction.
Folding (=>), iteration (->), and reification (-:) operators among others are helpful.

```Ursala
#import std
#import nat

num_to_string "b" = ||'0'! (-: num digits--letters)*+ @NiX ~&r->l ^|rrPlCrlPX/~& division\"b"

string_to_num "b" = @x =>0 sum^|/(-:@rlXS num digits--letters) product/"b"
```

This test program performs the conversions in both directions for a selection of numbers
in base 8 and base 32.

```Ursala
test_data = <1,2,15,32,100,65536,323498993>

#cast %sLnLUL

tests =

<
num_to_string32* test_data,
string_to_num32* num_to_string32* test_data,
num_to_string8*  test_data,
string_to_num8*  num_to_string8* test_data>
```

output:

```txt

<
<'1','2','f','10','34','2000','9kgcvh'>,
<1,2,15,32,100,65536,323498993>,

## Wolframalpha

input box:  1801 decimal to base 16

input box:  (99 base 12)+(77 base 8)

This is Mathematica but is worth showing distinctly.  Result provides endian choice and other bases typically.

## zkl

The toInt(base) and toString(base) methods do this. base is 2..36

```zkl
(26).toString(16)  //--> "1a"
"1a".toInt(16)    //-->26
```

In addition, string format is able to convert to a base:

```zkl
"%x %,.2B".fmt(26,26) //-->"1a 1|1010"
```
