These are great programs for quick conversion between decimal based numbers, but are limited in only being able to do one at a time.

Has anyone created an egen function for these programs?
If not, it would be nice if Stata could incorporate these into new functions. Something like:

gen newvar = inbase(x, b)

gen xb2 = inbase(x,2)

where x is numeric expression and 2 or b is the new base expression and so forth. Being able to change the base by observation is also handy.

Just one to add to the request list for an update or Vers.9. :)

( OR someone with spare time could probably do this in a few hours for egen.)

Thanks!
Kaleb...
