Welcome to FeelTheBase v1.1


Does any of the following apply to you? If so, you need FeelTheBase. This utility handles numbers in decimal, hexadecimal, binary, text and IP address form simultaneously. A change to any type of number is immediately reflected in its other forms with a mouseclick or return press. It's also a color picker. Grab any color on screen and see it's numeric form.

Getting it

You can download FeelTheBase here or launch it directly as a Java Web Start application.

Installing and uninstalling

Simply drag the FeelTheBase folder to your favourite program folder and add a shortcut to wherever you please. FeelTheBase doesn't write into the system registry (unless requested to) so uninstalling is simply a matter of removing the folder.

FeelTheBase comes in two flavors, you will only need one of them and can remove the other one:

The user interface

FeelTheBase is based on a main window with a couple of fields and buttons. The function of each element is explained below. (You may also click on an area of the image)

The fields

Each field expects a number (or text) to be entered in a specific format. By pressing Enter or selecting another field, the data entered will be converted to all other forms and displayed in the other fields.

The mode buttons

The settings window

New to v1.1 is a settings window where FeelTheBase can be configured to your preference. The settings window is accessed from the system menu (the small icon to the left of the window title bar). The function of each element is explained below.


FeelTheBase v1.1 is FreeWare, enjoy!
