Base Conversions: Converts Numbers From Binmode, Octmode or Hexmode to Decimal and Vice Versa

Description

These functions convert numbers from one base to another.
There are several solutions for this problem out there, but the naming is quite heterogeneous and so
consistent function names might be helpful.

A numeric or character vector of the same length as x containing the converted values.
Binary, octal and decimal values are numeric, hex-values are returned as class hexmode.

Arguments

x

a vector of numbers, resp. alphanumerical representation of numbers (hex), to be converted.
