/** @name Integer to string conversion functions
   Fast, safe conversions from long to a character representation which gets
   appended to a string. This method will take a long value 'val' and it will
   recursively divide it by 'base' in order to "extract" one by one the
   digits which compose it; these digits will be <i>appended</i> to the
   string <tt>str_val</tt> which will become the textual representation of
   'val'. Please notice that the digits ``extracted'' from `val' will vary
   depending on the base chosen for the conversion; for example val=15
   converted to base 10 will yield the digits (1,5), converted to base 16
   will yield (F) and converted to base 2 will yield (1,1,1,1).

   @param val The long value we which to convert to string.

   @param base A value in the range [2,36] which is the base to use while
   transforming the long value 'val' to its textual representation. Typical
   bases are 2 (binary), 10 (decimal) and 16 (hexadecimal).

   @param str_val This is the string that will hold the textual
   representation of 'val'. The string <tt>str_val</tt> should be
   pre-set to an empty
   string ("") otherwise the output of this function will just append the
   textual representation of val to whatever data is there; these feature may
   be useful if you wish to append a long value to a string s1 (just like
   operator+ does) without having to create a new string object s2 and then
   use string::operator+ between s1 and s2.

   @return void. This method returns nothing however be aware that it will
   throw and exception of type <tt>std::invalid_argument</tt> if the parameter
   base is not in the valid range. */
