Description

User enters values in the form of either binary, hexidecimal, base 10, real, or ASCII text. The value entered is translated into all of these representations. A graphic in the center of the applet displays the bit pattern in a 32-bit word.

Evaluation

Clear presentation of the information, with the user given control over the process. In a natural way, users are encouraged to play around with the representations to see their relationships.

Usage Notes

This is a Java applet (or a .jar file can be downloaded). User uses radio buttons to select an input, and then types in the desired value. On typing "return", the value is translated into all of the representations.
