Decimal to Hexadecimal conversion

Posted by enquirer (enquirer), 20 September 2004
How do you use 'format' to get a hex number from a decimal value (I have done it the long way by writing a procedure which seems a bit silly)

Use the format command, the %x formatter.   Here's an interactive example:

% set num 20
% puts [format %x $num]
