RE: HP 50g Base Conversion
yes, the HP-50G has a base conversion functionality built in. You'll find it by pressing keys left-shift then 6 (Convert), then option 2 (Base). From there you can change the base to Hex, Dec, Oct and Bin and can access the conversion function R->B (decimal to whatever base you choosed) and B->R (the other way round). I've tried it out with exact mode activated and it works.

All that is described in chapter 19 of the user guide.

So your programs have the advantage to work with any base, not only 2,8,10 and 16. Thank you very much for your contribution.

Best regards
