What is Base8 (Octal)?

Base8, often known as octal, is a numeric system with eight unique numbers ranging from 0 to 7. While base8 is typically used for numerical representation, it can also be used to encode text by interpreting each character’s ASCII value in an octal format. This makes it valuable for effectively expressing numeric and textual information in computer systems and programming languages.

What is Base8 Encoding?

Base8 encoding, also known as octal encoding, is a numeral system using 8 digits from 0 to 7 to represent numbers. Each digit in base-8 corresponds to a unique combination of three binary digits, making it convenient for computers. It is less common than hexadecimal (base16) and decimal (base10) encoding but is occasionally used in computing contexts, particularly in low-level programming and permissions representation.

How do I use the Text to Octal Encoder?

  1. Enter the data you want to encode in text format or upload a file.
  2. If you want to encode each line separately, you can tick it in the Options.
  3. There is no need to press a button, the conversion will be done automatically.
  4. The result is displayed in the Output field, which you can copy by pressing the Copy button.

Is it secure to use your Text to Octal Converter?

The data you enter in the input field and the output results are not saved and stored on our servers, so you don’t have to worry about data security.
