Jens, on the W2K issue. I have seen on NT4 the logout after logon caused by lack of permissions on the C:\winnt directory and subdirectories.

So we can shorten the variables and UDF name from what you specified in the rules?

Function BaseConverter($value,$frombase,$tobase)
...
Endfunction

To $f=a($b,$c,$d) ?

jens,
well...
If I'm awake at the time of posting-enabled, i'll post competitor for howard.

no any 4.10 functionality... as I'm using 4.02 but I'll make a working one anyway.

have been scratching my hair for so many hours that can't give up anymore...

as time being 1800 and last night spent at this, I'll probably go to bed now when 10 base to any imageable base part is finished.
the rest is just 2-3 lines away...

cheers,

I am still squashing some bugs that show themselves quite easily when converting to base2 using my approach. In case some one out there has implemented similiar functionality, I suggest that everyone verify proper functionality and result when BaseConverter("52",10,2) or BaseConverter("49",10,2).

Howard, whats this:

$=B($v,$d,$e)

is that what your using to call your function ? did you change the function protoype as well ?

HI DANA EDDY !!! GOOD TO SEE YOU ONLINE !!!

That is the function call. I shortened it based on Jens comments earlier. I explicitly ask him for a ruling on "$=B($v,$d,$e)" vs. "$result=BaseConverter($value,$frombase,$tobase)", but he has yet to respond. Until then I was going to be aggressive. [Wink]

He said that the function call had to be included.

I only Dim'ed what was necessary for my code to function - (0). Oh, I am giving away the farm here. [Smile]

well, guess we should get a ruling on this [Wink] but personally, i think we should be allowed to shorten anything that isn't exposed to the UDF user, so this would be the minimum prototype:

function baseconverter($v,$f,$t)

and probably all $vars should be dimmed because they could possibly affect the user as well.

oh yeah, and maybe going forward, the puzzle should be phrased as:

? baseconverter($v,$f,$t)

instead of

$result = baseconverter($v,$f,$t)

that way, we don't have to keep commenting and deleting lines to get a KiXgolf count.

Based on the above discussion:

KixGolf score = 351 [Wink]

correction, forgot to put the quotes around the old and new base (in the call) [Frown]

My daughter wants to go to the pool. How is that going to happen if you keep cutting stroke off your score?

KixGolf score = 293

Not including calling the function.. but includes all parts of the function! (THIS ONE WORKS, BABY!... fast, too!) (hmm. add 40 to get the test function given... but I don't think it should count.

Brian

{edit}
make that 289.. (hmm. i suppose it's bad code not to initialize variables?) Maybe still 293.. lol

{edit again}
make that 287... I don't think I can trim much more out of this, though.

{edit again}
ok.. make that 278... although I'm pretty positive with this method I can't get it any smaller..

Okay guys, I'm going to comment on the function call issue:
code:
$result=BaseConverter('44680832201','10','36')

is the function call to the UDF. Therefore I expect the function itself to be in this form in order to get the lowest score:
code:
FUNCTION BaseConverter($b,$c,$d)
;the code itself
ENDFUNCTION

To be fair, we should keep the function name itself as BaseConverter. With regards to the DIM issues, since KiXtart does not require to DIM a variable (according to the manual), you don't need to do it either, unless it would cause problems inside your code.

And, BTW, the call to the function does not count, just the function itself (FUNCTION to ENDFUNCTION). Oh, and if you're using another UDF that is called by your main UDF, that one of course counts too. Just in case somebody wrote a custom MOD() or POWER() UDF.

Finally, the BaseConverter doesn't need to work for fractional numbers, just integers. BrianTX, you asked for clarification [Wink]

Brian, very nice ...

KixGolf score = 292

not including the call, and the prototype like this:

function baseconverter($n,$f,$t)

and to be honest, I don't think I can squeeze any more out of this puppy !!!
