Lately…I’ve been learning “R”…that weird programming language aimed for Statistics and Statistical programming…and I really like it…so as usual, I needed to create my own Decimal to Binary application -;)

binary<-function(p_number) { bsum<-0 bexp<-1 while (p_number > 0) { digit<-p_number %% 2 p_number<-floor(p_number / 2) bsum<-bsum + digit * bexp bexp<-bexp * 10 } return(bsum) } p_number<-readline("Decimal number?: ") p_number<-as.numeric(p_number) bsum<-binary(p_number) cat("Binary: ", bsum)

For this example, I used RStudio.

Greetings,

Blag.
