convert decimal to octal number system in php

In this tutorial, we will create an Auto Convert Decimal To Octal Number System using PHP. This code will automatically convert the given decimal number into an octal number. The code uses the PHP POST method to initiate a technique that forcefully turns the decimal number into octal bypassing the int argument in the PHP built-in function decoct. This is a user-friendly kind of program feel free to modify it.

We will be using PHP as a scripting language and interpreter that is used primarily on any web server, including xamp, wamp, etc. It is being used to any popular websites, and it has a modern technology that can be easily used by the next generation.

Getting Started:

First, you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that runs PHP scripts. Here’s the link for the XAMPP server https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html.

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create a copy of the form and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
    </head>
<body>
    <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
        <div class="container-fluid">
            <a class="navbar-brand" href="https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
        </div>
    </nav>
    <div class="col-md-3"></div>
    <div class="col-md-6 well">
        <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Auto Convert Decimal To Octal Number System</h3>
        <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
            <div class="col-md-3">
                <form action="" method="POST">
                    <div class="form-group">
                        <label>Enter number</label>
                        <input type="number" name="decimal" class="form-control" required="required"/>
                    </div>
                    <center><button class="btn btn-primary" name="convert">Convert</button></center>
                </form>
            </div>
            <div class="col-md-8">
                <?php include'convert.php'?>
            </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will convert the decimal number when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as convert.php

<?php
    if(ISSET($_POST['convert'])){
        $decimal = $_POST['decimal'];
 
        $octal = decoct($decimal);
 
        echo "<center><h3>The number <span class='text-primary'>".$decimal."</span> in decimal is equal to <span class='text-primary'>".$octal."</span> in Octal</h3></center>";
    }
?>

There you have it we successfully created Auto Convert Decimal To Octal Number System using PHP. I hope that this simple tutorial help you to what you are looking for. For more updates and tutorials just kindly visit this site. Enjoy Coding!
