**Atari Hex-To-Decimal Conversion**

The hex to decimal conversion program in "Readers' Feedback" in the July 1984 COMPUTE! by Frank Sgabellone is quite powerful. However, the modifications necessary to make it run on an Atari might not be too obvious. The following translation will work on Ataris. The value of C in line 20 can be changed, to vary the number of leading zeros.
