Mmm, go away your computer for a week, and get more than 130 messages just
for the Lua mailing list to read... I am happy to see this list so active :-)

I suppose you mean converting FP number to human readable strings, as others
seems to think. As Benjohn stated, a simple conversion of hashing purpose is
very simple, so I doubt that's what you meant.

You may want to take a look at the trio library
<>. I haven't really tried it, but I keep the link just in case :-) The
licence is MIT like, so compatible with your, I think. I don't know if the reverse
conversion is accurate.
