Is Spatial Analyst needed to have Raster to Polygon tool available in conversion tools?

Hello,

 

Some time ago, I was working with ArcInfo with all available extensions. I am now looking to get ArcView with no extensions. In looking around ESRI's website, it is unclear to me weather I can get ArcView without Spatial Analyst and be able to perform "Raster to Polygon" (conversion tools).

 

For example:
http://resources.esri.com/help/9.3/arcgisengine/java/gp_toolref/conversion_tools/polygon_to_raster_conversion_.htm
explicitly states that "polygon to raster" requires spatial analyst, but a link at the botton of the page that leads to the equivalant page for "raster to polygon" does not explicitly state that Spatial Analyst is required.

 

Also I don't know if anything changed from arcView 9.3 to 10 in terms of raster conversion and having a spatial analyst license?

 

Many thanks!
