If you don't bother in receive those convertions in a String format, you can use the Integer's methods:
  • toBinaryString(int)
  • toOctalString(int)
  • toHexalString(int)
  • However, if you declare an int variable and atribute a number prefixed with the zero digit, you assigning an actal value. The same happens for an hax value, if you prefix the number with "0x".

    It really looks to me like this question has already been answered. For example:

    Gives output:

    Now if this isn't what you want...what sort of output are you expecting instead?

    I think you require the following :

    Decimal I/P : Binary O/P - using toBinaryString(int i). You can also use toString(int i,2)

    Binary I/P : Octal O/P - as far a I know there's no method . So you can convert the binary input to Decimal value and then use toOctalString(int i) or toString(int i,8)

    Octal I/P : Hex O/P - similar to above ..

    Better suggestions are welcome !

    hello black carlos.........
    my suggestion to you is to write your own methods for conevrting to binary and to octal rather that using any java method.
    This will help you to improve your programming skill.
