CALC.EXE on a Windoze box. View, Scientific. (Binary, Octal, Decimal, Hexadecimal.) Change the base to do a conversion.

I don't know about Matlab or similar products, but in Fortran (and other languages), the math is all done in the system's floating point or integer formats. The resulting values can be printed in whatever bases are supported by the available I/O library routines.
