Currently if a number is converted to another number system there are 3 possibilities:

  • All is working fine.
  • The number overflows and shows inf (on unsigned).
  • The number overflows and shows a positive number (on signed).

Personally I don't like the complement of 2 here so I'm choosing to use unsigned. But there is the disadvantage that negative decimal numbers can't be converted to another number system anymore. In this case it would be nice if galculator would provide the ability to show on hex, oct and bin also a minus-sign.
