How about going the other direction? Converting an octal or hexadecimal string into an integer? Can we add that to the task or start another task for it? -- 22:20, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

See Number base conversion. --Paddy3118 05:20, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah but you can say the same thing about what's on this page, that converting from integers to special bases are special cases of Number base conversion too. But the point is that there might be a simpler way of doing it in particular bases that there is not for general bases in your language. -- 07:28, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
I've added Common number base parsing so that that can be shown off too. I also renamed this task so it is clearer what is what. —Donal Fellows 08:14, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
