How to use

Quick guide

Official content
Returns an array of integers representing the base-radix digits of self; the first element of the array represents the least significant digit:
12345.digits      # => [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
12345.digits(7)   # => [4, 6, 6, 0, 5]
12345.digits(100) # => [45, 23, 1]
Raises an exception if self is negative or base is less than 2.
