( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As poj says. Heh... didn't know that there's a module for that. This is what I have in my toolbox

my %hash; my @chars = (0..9,'A'..'Z','a'..'z',map{chr$_}32..47,58..64,91..96 +); @hash{@chars} = 0..$#chars; sub encode_base { my ($base,$num) = @_; my ($rem,@ret); while ($num) { push @ret, $chars[($rem = $num % $base)]; $num -= $rem; $num /= $base; } return join '', reverse @ret; } sub decode_base { my ($base, $str) = @_; my $num; $num = $num * $base + $hash{$_} for $str =~ /./g; $num; }

which is basically the same, but lets you encode/decode with a base up to 91. So,

my $number = decode_base 36, 1009; say lc encode_base 36, $number++ for 0..36;

does what you want. Also, these subs can be used to convert from decimal to binary, octal, hex and reverse, using 2, 8 and 16 as base. But I'd use the perl builtins for that ;-)

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
