Base42 Font based on Freefont sans unicode. (Try cutting and pasting this once it's installed:ⅡⅢⅣⅤⅥⅦⅧⅨⅩⅪⅫⅬⅭⅮⅯ)

Font Concepts

Here are some concepts on how to render the glyphs.

Things you can do



Code

Conversion to and from other bases in various programming languages. The code here is generalized as follows:

  • Real numbers are converted to the specified heximal place.
  • Where possible, arbitrary bases are supported.
  • Conversion supports any Unicode character for each digit.
