Indeed. That would be a program that mimics what I see on my 28S, 48GX and 50g when it comes to base conversion and manipulations like AND, OR and XOR. On my 28S, for example, I need only press the red button, then the B key for Binary and that's where the magic happens. I want it to be that easy on the Prime.

Until we have your program and in the interest of clarity, so others are aware, baseconv WILL convert between ANY base and also easily handles manipulations such as AND, OR and XOR:

eg. Baseconv(#FEh XOR #11101b) converted to decimal #227d

Heres the code again to bring the thread back on topic
Code:
 EXPORT Baseconv(in) BEGIN LOCAL base,bits,sign; CHOOSE(base, "Base", "System", "Binary","Octal","Decimal","Hex"); CHOOSE(bits, "Size","System","Input","8","16","32","64"); IF bits >2 THEN CHOOSE(sign, "Sign","Unsigned","Signed") END; //IF LEFT(STRING(in),1) ≠ "#" THEN in:=EXPR("#"+in+"d") END; //correct the format - no longer needed CASE IF bits=1 THEN bits:=GETBITS(#) END //use system bitw IF bits=2 THEN bits:=GETBITS(in) END //use input bitw DEFAULT bits:=2^(bits) END; IF sign=2 THEN bits:=1-bits END; SETBITS(SETBASE(in,base-1),bits);  //R→B(B→R(in),bits,base-1) //old command END;
