Project description

Module to represent integers as any other based representation string.

There exist direct converter functions.

>>> from bda.basen import str2int
>>> from bda.basen import int2str

>>> ref = 'abcde'

>>> int2str(12345, ref)

>>> str2int('abcde', ref)

Or a direct representation call for a 62 ascii based base.

>>> from bda.basen import base62
>>> term = base62(100)
>>> str(term)

>>> term = base62('1D')
>>> int(term)

This works also with uuids, which is with ~22 chars less than the default hex with 32 chars:

>>> term = base62(uuid.uuid4())

basej uses 91 chars ascii as base (no backslash, no single/double quotes, no control chars). With this a chance to get 20 chars for a uuid is high:

>>> term = basej(uuid.uuid4())
