Use any characters as your own numeric base and convert to and from decimal. This can be taken advantage of in various ways:
- Mathematics: number conversion
- Brute force sequencing
- Rolling ciphers
- Moderate information concealment
- Other potential uses such as deriving music or art from numbers
There is also a Ruby and Crystal implementation of this which this was based off of.
Add the following to your Cargo.toml file
[dependencies] base_custom = "^0.2"
To include it for usage add
extern crate base_custom; use base_custom::BaseCustom;
to your file.
// Binary with no delimiter let base2 = BaseCustom::<char>::new("01".chars().collect()); assert_eq!(base2.decimal("00001"), 1_u64); assert_eq!(base2.decimal("100110101"), 309_u64); assert_eq!(base2.gen(340), "101010100"); assert_eq!(base2.gen(0xF45), "111101000101"); assert_eq!(base2.gen(0b111), "111"); // Trinary with no delimiter let base3 = BaseCustom::<char>::new("ABC".chars().collect()); assert_eq!(base3.decimal("ABC"), 5); assert_eq!(base3.gen(123), "BBBCA"); // Custom base like Musical Chords and a space delimiter let base_music = BaseCustom::<String>::new("A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#", Some(' ')); assert_eq!(base_music.decimal("F F# B D# D A# D# F# "), 314159265); assert_eq!(base_music.gen(314159265), "F F# B D# D A# D# F# ");
