Honestly i thought that you math guys, easily could see howto convert ordinary bases to zeroless NyaN bases. For me it took a week to find the generic algorithm for anybase to write out any number using NyaN base notation, but it was 15 years ago so it probably will take me a week or two.
The annoying thing is that i know that the generic basechanger i wrote for standard base was written so a single line of code could change it to NyaN bases, but i am probably getting old because i think i have to start all over with NyaN algorithm. When i do changes it hangs and without a debugger line for line it is harder.
The generic basechanger is allready working, but how do i get it to write out NyaN bases instead of standard bases.
