why is the eval needed for hex numbers from strings? Seems a bit odd for a computer language.
In many (most) other languages -- I'd post a list, but the PM post size limit is something like 64kb -- you would have to explicitly convert the string containing a decimal number also -- see atoi(), atoi64(), atof() etc. in your local C compiler's CTR manual.
Your expectations are naive; and your protestations more so.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
