gbase - small numeric base converter


gbase [options]


gbase converts numbers between bases 2 (binary), 8 (octal), 10 (decimal), 16

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
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.
