Convert dec to hex using nios ii

I was curious if there were a list of functions, in Nios ii using C, that convert decimal values to hex, binary etc... I am use to programming in Matlab so I am use to the quick and easy hex2dec converter. Thanks.

Nios or any other cpu always works with binary values. Other numeric bases makes sense only for formatted input/output. 

In this case the common stdio printf/scanf functions can do what you are asking for: 

printf("%d", v) : v in decimal format 

printf("%x", v) : v in hex format 

printf("%o", v) : v in octal format

I tend to avoid all the scanf() family of functions, they are very difficult to use safely. 

One of the strtoul() family is generally better for converting ascii input strings.
