Hello,

MATLAB provides dec2hex, hex2dec and other such functions to go between different number representations. After searching on the web and Julia documentation, I couldn’t easily get hits on these type of questions (other than implementing our own conversion functions). It seems like Julia 0.6 had a hex function to show the hex representation of integers, but this doesn’t seem to exist on 1.1.

```
hex(123)
```

The way to go from integer to hex seems to be

```
s = string(12345, base = 16)
```

The hex to Integer seems easier

```
Int(0x10)
```

Are there easier/quicker ways to do the decimal to hex conversion? If not, is there a way to request Julia developers to provide functionality similar to MATLAB?

(I could eventually just do this myself and create a local package, but since I’m new, I’m not yet familiar with the proper steps to write custom functions and make them available systemwide.)

Thanks,

Srikar
