Does anyone have any suggestions as far as reference material that would help me understand EBCDIC Character sets, Hex, Binary, and how you can tie them into CL's & RPGLE's, and whatnot?

    A related joke: Why do programmers celebrate Christmas and Halloween the same way? Because DEC(25) = OCT(31).

    No place like localhost? Would it work better if it were "THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE ~/ "? ThinkGeek is great, though!

    I can't help with most of those questions, but in case it helps, it's very easy to convert from any base to base 10. Here's how: Write all of the digits of the base-N number. Above, from right to left, write N^x where x goes from 0 and up. Convert those N^x to their decimal (base-10) equivalents, and then multiply each column. Then add those products. Eg, for the binary number 10110, you're in base-2:
     2^4  2^3  2^2  2^1  2^0 // powers, as exponents
      16    8    4    2    1  // powers, in base 10
    x  1    0    1    1    0
    ---------------------------
     16 +   0 +  4 +  2 +  1   = 23
    So 10110 in base 2 = 23 in base 10. Taking my joke as an example for oct (base 8):
    8^1  8^0
      8    1
      3    1    // We're converting 31 base 8
    --------
     24 +  1   = 25
    For hex, the numbers go 0-9, A, B, C, D, E, F. For the letters, when you're multiplying, treat them as 10-15.

    Anyone, anyone??? The problem is that it's such a fundamental question that no one has any idea why it would be asked. If those elements aren't known, then we have no clue what kind of answer will make sense. It's clear the OP isn't a programmer, so we can't even guess what terminology might be understood. It's like going to an auto shop and hearing the mechanic say "What's a 'wrench'? What's a 'bolt'?" Tom
