Sorry, that last post wasn't aimed at you particularly/personally, Andy.
I never read it that way.
I meant in general terms, people who use decimal numbers when coding. Everything seems so much more logical to me, once you get your head around thinking in hexadecimal. Especially things like lookup tables where the addresses have a proportional relationship with the values stored in them.
Sometimes I think life would be so much easier if we had sixteen fingers, so that our whole system of counting had evolved differently!
Not sure on the #10h vs #0A fingers business.
I do sort of use it occasionally for some values, for instance C9 = 201 = RET and FF = 255 those have been etched into my mind for many years. I think though if my 'start' was on the BBC or similar machine then I would of used it more frequently, one thing I have just thought of too is there's no inbuilt hex tool in ZX Basic either, that may also explain things maybe , mind you there's no ELSE either something I never really was concerned about until I used other dialects of Basic then realised how much use it is,
I still sort of half write things then realise I have to change them accommodate this awol function.
