English isn't my first language, so you'd have to forgive me for any mistakes you might find...
I couldn't find more suitable place to post it, and i hope this is the right forum for my question...

(the reason i'm showing the calculation here is because i would love to hear about a better, faster way to convert numbers from base to base)

for example: if i want to convert to an octal, eight based number, i first need to convert to , and only then i'm able to convert to an octal number.
is there a way to skip the decimal conversion part and go straight to the octal number?
if so, how can it be done?
thanks in advanced, and have a nice day!
