|Feature request: hex literals|
Since you're asking for possible feature requests: I'm surprised that hex constants have never been implemented in PARI/GP, why cannot I do: gp> 0xDEADBEEF %1 = 3735928559 This looks like it should be easy to implement in the parser. It can see at least two uses for this: 1) if you somehow need to store large numbers in a GP file, reading them as hex digits would be faster than base 10. 2) copy/pasting pieces of \x output for debugging purposes.
