Hi,

Not sure whether this is right forum to start this thread.
Can you please help me with any pointers for Base62 to Decimal conversion.

Thanks

Base62? Do you mean Base64?

Can you give an example of your input and the output you expect?

Hi Bill,

Please check this site
convertxy.com/index.php/numberbases/

When a decimal is given, it displays the equivalent Base 62 format.

For example the Base62 for the decimal 58155547711 is 11Tikb1

Am looking for a decoding logic to trace the decimal value from Base62

Base62?

Never heard of it!

In the usual definition, base x means there are x unique values in each place. Base 8, (or octal) has 8, usually 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Base 16 (hexadecimal) has 16, usually 0, 1, ..., 9, A, ..., F. Base 2 (binary) has 2, usually 0, 1. Base 10 (decimal) has 10, usually 0, 1, ..., 9. So what is this base 62?

Base62 uses Alphabets in Upper case (A thru Z) - 26, Alphabets in Lower case (a thru z) - 26 and Intgers (0 thru 9) - 10.

Paper and pencil.

Turn the right-most digit into a number. Set your total to that. Set factor to 62. That is your starting point.

Until there are no more digits, take the next to the left. Turn it into a number. Multiply it by factor. Add it to total. Multiply factor by 62.

At the end of that, you should have your decimal value.

If you have lots to do, you can write a program. Calculate the powers of 62 and store them in a table. There's ALPHABETIC-LOWER, ALPHABETIC and NUMERIC. FUNCTION ORD. Shouldn't be too tricky.

Maybe you can take these base64 programs and adapt them.
