in thread base64 and hex question

Hi Limbic~Region,
Update: After talking with tye in the CB, he seems to think that Math::BaseCalc expects the number being converted to fit into a double as well as an endian problem. He suggested using Math::Fleximal instead and I stumbled on to converting from b64 -> b16 to correct for the endian problem encountered going the other way.
You are right, it can only convert numbers that fit into a double ( the docs say into a perl integer ). $num = $calc->from_base(STRING) Im very happy that you find this misbehavior. Yesterday I finnished something that rely on the conversion from dec to base64. But only for positive numbers up to 2147483647.
