def self.convert(number, from_base, to_base)
  from_base = Radix::Base.new(from_base) unless Radix::Base === from_base
  to_base   = Radix::Base.new(to_base)   unless Radix::Base === to_base
  to_base.convert(number, from_base)
end

.convert_base(digits, from_base, to_base) ⇒ String

Convert any base to any other base, using array of Fixnum's. Indexes of the array correspond to values for each column of the number in from_base

Parameters:

  • digits (Array<Fixnum>)

    Array of values for each digit of source base.

  • from_base (Fixnum)

    Source Base

  • to_base (Fixnum)

    Destination Base

Returns:

  • (String)

    The value of digits in from_base converted as to_base.
