open it up, type in the big decimal number you want, then
go to the menubar and look for View->Display Format->Hexadecimal.
Now, that's rather bersome if you need to do a lot
of them and want to script it up somehow. In that case,
your shell can do it:
Assuming you are using bash or zsh:
$ printf '%x\n', 987654321987
For more information,
and look for the builtin 'printf'
Then, to learn about print formats, (ie. to find out
that the formatter you want is %x),
Actually, any program or language which gives you access
to printf gets you some handy conversion functions.
