A Literal Converter for Integers


Electronic engineers often feel the need to plot experiment data observed from electronic instruments (e.g. Oscilloscope meters). More often than not, the data is stored in one format (e.g. hexadecimal), while the plotting software needs another input format (e.g. decimal). This is quite inconvenient. I finally decided to wrap the conversion into a C++ class: CLiteralConverter. In practice, integer literals usually come in four guises: decimal, octal, hexadecimal, and binary literals. So CLiteralConverter only provides conversion between these four formats.


Although demonstrated with a MFC demo application, The code is written in standard C++. So it can be used with different platforms easily.
