# # Non-Decimal Ranges

Create arrays of integers from non-decimal number bases

## # Description

When making arrays you can specify ranges of an alternative number base by using an `x` or `.` in the end range:

``````a [00..ffx16]
a [00..ff.16]
``````

All number bases from 2 (binary) to 36 (0-9 plus a-z) are supported. Please note that the start and end range are written in the target base while the base identifier is written in decimal: `[hex..hex.dec]`

Also note that the additional zeros denotes padding (ie the results will start at `00`, `01`, etc rather than `0`, `1`...)

Please refer to a (mkarray) for more detailed usage of mkarray.

## # Usage

``````a: [start..end] -> <stdout>
a: [start..end,start..end] -> <stdout>
a: [start..end][start..end] -> <stdout>
``````

All usages also work with `ja` and `ta` as well, eg:

``````ja: [start..end] -> <stdout>
ta: data-type [start..end] -> <stdout>
``````

You can also inline arrays with the `%[]` syntax, eg:

``````%[start..end]
``````

## # Examples

``````Â» a [08..10x16]
08
09
0a
0b
0c
0d
0e
0f
10
``````
``````Â» a [10..08x16]
10
f
e
d
c
b
a
9
8
``````

## # Detail

### # Floating Point Numbers

If you do need a range of fixed floating point numbers generated then you can do so by merging two decimal integer ranges together. For example

``````Â» a [05..10x8].[0..7]
05.0
05.1
05.2
05.3
05.4
05.5
05.6
05.7
06.0
06.1
06.2
...
07.5
07.6
07.7
10.0
10.1
10.2
10.3
10.4
10.5
10.6
10.7
``````

### # Everything Is A String

Please note that all arrays are created as strings. Even when using typed arrays such as JSON (`ja`).

``````Â» ja [0..5]
[
"0",
"1",
"2",
"3",
"4",
"5"
]
``````
