(BTW I deleted my first reply - the syntax is WAY wrong).

Normally I do it the hard way. To convert to octal

Assuming a number less that 32,768

____ ___ __ _

4096 512 64 8 etc.

Take the number in decimal and find out how may 4096's are in it. Put that number over the 4096 space. Take the remainder and find out how many 512's are in it, put that over the 512 space. Then find how many 64's are in the remainder, put it over the 64 space. The last number should be <=7 put it over the 8. Now it is in Octal.
