What does "radix" found in wrapper classes (Integer,Character etc.,) of java mean?

Whats the use of radix ?

Thanks and Regards

The "radix" is the base used to parse the String into an int. For example, you may have a integer as a hexadecimal String (such as "0x4C5F"), so you would specify the radix as 16.
