gbase: small numeric base converter
gbase - small numeric base converter
gbase converts numbers between bases 2 (binary), 8 (octal), 10
(decimal), 16 (hexadecimal).
If you specify a number on the command line (preceded by a switch to
describe the base the number is in) the program will display that
number in the four bases on the console and exit.
You can also specify the -s switch which will allow you to
enter/display signed numbers. (This allows the use of a - (minus)
before a decimal number).
Just running the program without any switches will display the main
window. There are four entry boxes, corresponding to each of the four
bases. You can type into any of these boxes and the others will update
automagically. The program will ignore any characters that are not
allowed for that particular base. It will only allow a - (minus) at the
start of a decimal number, if the signed option is on.
