Greetings everyone. I have been working on a script to convert a number from any base to any base up to base62. The user supplies the original number, the starting base, and the end base. My problem arises when converting the fractional part from base10 to the end base; the script returns an empty string and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to fix it. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Code follows.

```
myinput = raw_input("Number: ")
mystart = int(raw_input("Starting base: "))
myend = int(raw_input("Ending base: "))
intlist = []
fraclist = []
intresult = ""
fracresult = ""
mydict1 = {"A" : 10, "B" : 11, "C" : 12, "D" : 13, "E" : 14, "F" : 15, "G" : 16,
"H" : 17, "I" : 18, "J" : 19, "K" : 20, "L" : 21, "M" : 22, "N" : 23,
"O" : 24, "P" : 25, "Q" : 26, "R" : 27, "S" : 28, "T" : 29, "U" : 30,
"V" : 31, "W" : 32, "X" : 33, "Y" : 34, "Z" : 35, "a" : 36, "b" : 37,

```

P.S. The variable names for the result strings are intresult and fracresult respectively. Thanks again.
