I understand converting binary to octal or hexadecimal in general, but
am curious how you handle the decimal portion of a number.
 Converting Directly from Base to Base [04/01/2001]

Is there a way of reducing the representation of a natural number from
one base to another directly without reducing to base 10 first?
