To Base N

apama.analyticsbuilder.blocks.ToBaseN

Converts a float to a base N string.

The output string can be in any integer base from 2 to 36, where letters of the English alphabet are used as digits for bases above 10. Common bases are 2 (binary), 8 (octal), 10 (decimal) and 16 (hexadecimal). The number being converted can contain a radix point. The output is calculated to a maximum precision of 16 radix places.

Conversion between two arbitrary bases can be achieved by chaining this block with the From Base N block.
