Since this is a frequently asked question, I';ve taken the liberty of
applying the patch shown in this message:
The variables ibase and obase are the base for input and output
of integers, respectively. These may be assigned a value 2 through
36, inclusive. When ibase > 10, digits 0 through 9 are interpreted
in ibase, which is correct, but there is no way to input a
digit a, b, c, ... z. The patch, which I have committed, makes
it possible to input a, b, c, ..., z as digits when ibase > 10.
However, these characters are interpreted as digits only when
the first digit is 0 through 9. So tokens which are now interpreted
as symbols continue to be symbols.
