    Nice to occasionally know my comments are ignored.

    Nobody. I just only receive the notification itself occasionally, such as this case. I'm sure the rate of people ignoring me is much higher than that. I just like receiving the confirmation.

    A better question is why you haven't coded up two general purpose routines

    int stringToInt( char *string, int inBase );
    void intToString( char *result, int value, int outBase );

    At the moment, you're relying on scanf to achieve
    result = stringToInt( "1234", 10 );

    I mean, once you understand all the /BASE and %BASE logic, converting to/from any base is a doddle. A couple of functions with some parameters (eg, the base to use) should see you solving all 6 cases in one go, not as you are at the moment hand crafting each solution as a special case.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
