# Integer.parsInt() method and allowed values of radix..

posted 8 years ago

output: 411787

I could not understand the output. i.e.

1.How to decide the range of radix.( in between Character.MIN_RADIX and Character.MAX_RADIX. given in api)

2.How can we decide what would be printed, if we take a radix 19 or 24.

3.what cab be allowed values for String argument if we take a radix, say 34.

public static int parseInt(String s,

int radix)

throws NumberFormatException

output: 411787

If you set the radix to the max i.e. 36, then the resulting Number system would have this sequence of digits (you can say it as the primary parts of a number system or something like 0-9 in decimal system are the basic parts which can be combined to form say one hundred and fifty as 150)

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

And suppose you take radix as 27, then the allowed values will be

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

And suppose you take radix as 27, then the allowed values will be

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ
