NAME
baseconv -- convert integers between "special" bases
SYNOPSIS
baseconv [ -v ] -i base -o base [ # ... ]
baseconv --version
DESCRIPTION
baseconv converts integers between bases 2 through 64.
The first four are useful to programmers and system administrators;
the others are used mainly when writing shell scripts for encoding
large numbers (typically to be used as part of a file name).
If no number is given on the command line, baseconv will read from
stdin (one number per line); if multiple numbers are given on the
comamnd line, the results will be printed one per line.
For all bases greater than 10, the input is case-sensitive.
The output "digits" for bases greater than 10 are as follows:
base 11: 0 - 9 A
base 12: 0 - 9 A B
base 12: 0 - 9 A B C
...
base 16: 0 - 9 A - F
...
base 32: 0 - 9 A - U
base 62: 0 - 9 A - Z a - z
base 64: 0 - 9 A - Z a - z "{" "}"
OPTIONS
-i #
the input base
-o #
the output base
-v
verbose; show the number in the input base and the output base
--version
show the version then exit
