converting numbers


I am using the base_convert() function to convert numbers between binary,
hexadecimal, decimal, etc... It works great, but I have problems converting
numbers with .'s

Like this number:

15.20 decimal will be 1111 as binary...

is there any way to include the rest of the number in the convertion?

Sure, just write your own conversion function. Note, however, that
you won't be able to use those binary, octal, or hexadecimal floats
anywhere; PHP only recognizes binary, octal, and hexadecimal integers.

I don't think base_convert caters for floating point binary numbers,
which is a little silly, so you'll have a to write a function to do that
for you. I suggest you type cast it to a string, use the dot to divide
the string into two, and then convert each number into binary, and then
do some floating point arithmetic to get the true result. If somebody
would like to post such a function?
