|I forgot how to do it on the 50g|
Message #1 Posted by Ken Ratkevich on 6 Nov 2007, 2:00 a.m.
I'm positive (almost) that I was able to convert a fractional bin # (like .011) to a dec # (.375) and vice-versa.
Am I nutz or is there a way?
Thanks in advance,

I'm pretty sure that non-decimal base operations for the 50G are integer only (after reading the users guide and experimenting with my 50G). The same goes for the 48GX and the 33S. About a year ago, I wrote a program for my venerable old 67 that would convert both the integer and fractional parts of a number between any two bases from 2 to 10 (don't ask me why). I could post it if you would be interested.
Best Regards, Hal
