Could someone tell me where I could get some documentation on RIP protocol?
Could someone describe the hexatridecimal number system and why it is more
efficient at transferring data?
RIP is Routing Information Protocol and is used by networks such as the
Internet for routing messages from source to destination hosts. Check books
on networking. I know there are also places on the net where such specifica-
tions can be found.

Hexatridecimal is base 36, using a-z and 0 though 9 for each "digit" or
place holder. Mainframe are still binary, even to IBM.
