put baseconvert("100000001",16,10)

...and yes, I understand what's going on under the hood, but I'm annoyed that the IDE doesn't give me an overflow warning if I try to perform an operation on a number that's bigger than 0xFFFFFFFF. Instead, it just happily trims it down to an unsigned integer and proceeds to give me a wrong result. I came across this yesterday handing two large numbers to the bitXor operand which threw no errors and went on with the rest of the calculation. I had to backtrack to figure out what was going on, and finally ended up writing my own bitwise operators to deal with this.
