Summary description:  Typeset counters in a different base

Announcement text:

 This package typesets a LaTeX counter such as page in an arbitrary
 base (default 16).  It does not change font or typeface.

 The package extends the functionality of the existing
 hex LaTeX 2.09 package and provides documentation.
 However, the author is not a mathematician, and
 suggestions for rewriting the code are welcomed.

 Warning: this is alpha software and may contain bugs.
 Please report problems to the author.
