wincent Hextrapolate: the programmer's pal

Introducing Hextrapolate

Hextrapolate icon

Hextrapolate is a flexible number conversion utility for programmers and other people who work with numbers in a digital setting. It converts, in real time, any number in any base representation from base 2 (binary) through to base 36. Numbers can be arbitrarily large, limited only by the availability of system resources.

By default, the main window provides spaces for the entry and display of hexadecimal, decimal (base 10), octal (base 8) and binary (base 2) representations, as well as two adjustable fields for the other bases and two for text representation in either ASCII (7-bit text), UTF-8 or UTF-16.
