Nope - I suggest you know how to go from decimal to binary to octal to hex and any other combinations of those bases. It's really not that hard - if you do a search in this forum, you'll find tons of threads all about this.

Juggling with binary, hexadecimal, octal and decimal representations of numbers is a MUST for any respectable programmers.
