[PD] hexadecimal conversion problem

i'm trying to convert arbitrary hexadecimal numbers to decimal ones,
preferably with vanilla objects.
while it's easy to do it the other way round with [makefilename], i'm
facing a peculiar problem from hex --> dec when the letter E is present
and followed by a number.
my approach would be to take a hex number, interpret it as a symbol, get
each hex-digit's ascii value, and do the conversion from there
let's take the hex number 27E5 as an example
no matter what sort of conversion i try ([symbol], [list tosymbol],
[makefilename], [fudiformat]), PD always interprets it as a decimal
number with an exponent, so
will give me "symbol 2.7e+006" in the console (or in a symbol atom).
(of course a number like 27A5 or 275E expands with no problem to a
straight symbol and can then be ascii-fied)
is there anything i can do to make PD take 27E5 as a literal symbol
rather than a float ?
