Proteus – a command-line program for radix base conversion

There’s a github project by the name of Proteus that I started recently. It supports the basics such as converting ASCII text ⇒ Binary, or OctalBase64 and so on. While you can find any number of online sites that have webtools which can convert blocks of text (or integers) for you, there’s really no basic tool out there for converting.
