Binary to Decimal Conversion
Posted 14 February 2010  02:55 PM
I have an assignment to write a java code to convert a binary number to a decimal number and print it. Here is what I have so far and I am stuck and could realy use some help. Please forgive me because I was really having a hard time wrapping my head around this for some reason. Please give me any help you can; it would be greatly appreciated. The file compiled without errors but it didn't print out anything; it did nothing after I entered the number.

So you commented this:
And didn't commented this?
...
System.out.println("Enter a Binary Number:");//prompt for binary number to be converted
And didn't commented this?
int r; int s = 0; int p = 1;

I know. I am lost. I tried to get some help from a previous post (http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=153586&st=20) but I think it just confused me more. Maybe I should start over. I have to write a beginner program to convert a binary integer to a decimal integer and they want us to use division and remainder to get there. Can you provide any help? Of course my assignment is due at midnight tonight and I didn't realize I would have so much trouble with this but for some reason I have just hit a brick wall with this and don't know where to start...

The reson is that after checking if n is a binary number, the value of n is 0.
then the while loop to convert n to decimal will NEVER execure. because n is never bigger than 0.
you can have two options.
1. you can set a temp variable to hold the value of n, and perform the check on this variable.
2. do both checking and converting in the same loop:
option 2:  converting and checking in the same loop

You are AWESOME! That made SO much more sense to me than what I was trying to do. Thanks SO MUCH!

you should really think about naming your variables something more straight forward.
