According to the Matlab documentation, the first input of dec2hex can be a character array:
and it will be converted as integers.

>> dec2hex('.')
ans =

I would change the input conversion in dec2base.m:

if (islogical (d) || ischar (d))
    d = double (d);

but the documentation mentions "dec2hex treats characters as their Unicode".
