Replacing This Article

I have worked on a new hexadecimal article at User:AJ/Hexadecimal Notation which is a bit more in-depth than the current version (which seems to be put on the wiki a while ago now). Could I get opinions on whether I could replace the existing article (after some tidying up)? I also plan to do binary (with bitwise compares etc...) and possibly decimal versions of the article too. If it's best, I'll ask this in the forums. --AJ 06:18, 23 November 2007 (CST)

What is missing in your version is how to convert between decimal and hex, you currently say nothing about getting the decimal value of a hex number, and you refer to printf for "converting" decimal to hex, which people will not always be able to use. For these reasons I say no for the time being. - Combuster 15:16, 25 November 2007 (CST)
Fair enough - I'll work on it and add something about conversion to decimal. I'm sure I can't see where I suggest using printf to convert hex to decimal, though. The only place I see a reference to printf() is where I distinguish between printing Hex numbers with either capital or lowercase letters. --AJ 03:47, 26 November 2007 (CST)
