represented in base tobase
. The base in
which number

frombase

frombase

base higher than 10 will be represented with the letters a-z,

base_convert() may lose precision on large numbers due to properties related to the internal "double" or "float" type used. Please see the Floating point numbers section in the manual for more specific information and limitations.
