Convert hexadecimal character vector to binary coefficients


b = hex2poly(hex)
b = hex2poly(hex,ord)



b = hex2poly(hex) converts a hexadecimal character vector, hex, to a vector of binary coefficients, b.

b = hex2poly(hex,ord) specifies the power order, ord, of the coefficients that comprise the output. If omitted, ord is 'descending'.
