Hi guys.

i'm new here.

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...

So, i want to be able to convert numbers from one base to another.

i know how to do it from any given (decimal) number, to any other base.

Say i want to convert the number 347:

So (the remainders).

and the other direction:

(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)

my problem is:

i want to be able to convert numbers from base to base directly.

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!
