Nice little hex<->decimal app I wrote

Not sure whether this is the right place to put this, so please move if needs be, admins. :)

I wrote, three or so years ago, a really useful little app if you are wanting to convert hex to decimal and vice versa a lot. I got bored of kcalc and having to press buttons to go between base 16 and base 10 when I was doing it all the time. So, I knocked this up. When you alter one value it automatically changes the other. So, if you type in the decimal line edit it brings up the hex value automatically. Similarly, if you type in the hex line edit, the decimal value changes automatically.

It's written in Qt and I assume the executable will run on anyone's desktop that is using Mageia 5 KDE (but I could be way wrong there). I have also included the source code that you can very easily compile and run from Qt creator. Just open the dex.pro file and hit the big green arrow.

If anyone wants to put it in the repositories, that would be absolutely fine. In fact I'd be delighted!

I'm no C++ programmer, so it may be that a proper C++ dev will look at it an go "yuk". However, it works and it's super simple. So, I don't care! ;)

Enjoy!

Pretty cool. Nice little mini-app.

I miss the old days when you didn't have to install programs. You just ran them.

You could ask from Thomas Backlund our sysadmin and kernel dev to take a look your code as he is professional coder who have given he life to coding..... :)
He can code with c and c++ so he would help you very much.
