 May 26 2006, 9:58 pm Depends, what does it do?
 May 26 2006, 10:08 pm You would look up text2num() in the reference. :P
 May 26 2006, 10:36 pm In response to Jp text2num() doesn't do base conversions though. If you want base conversion you'll have to write the algorithm yourself. A web search will turn up ways of doing it; you'll have to adapt them to DM, but that shouldn't be hard provided you understand it all.
 May 26 2006, 10:46 pm In response to Crispy Ah, he's looking for base conversions? The basic idea is pretty simple: Numbers can be represented as follows: n=x*b**0 + y*b**1 + z*b**2... Where x, y and z are the digits. For example, 642, in decimal, is 6*10**2 + 4*10**1 + 2*10**0. That number b (10, in this case) is the base. So converting between binary and decimal is just a matter of converting x*10**0 + y*10**1 + z*10**0... into x*2**0 + y*2**1 + z*2**2... Which isn't all that difficult.
