bin

Binary representation of stored integer of fi object

Syntax

bin(a)

Description

bin(a) returns the stored integer of fi object a in unsigned binary format as a character vector. bin(a) is equivalent to a.bin.

Fixed-point numbers can be represented as

real-world value=2fraction length×stored integer

or, equivalently as

real-world value=(slope×stored integer)+bias

The stored integer is the raw binary number, in which the binary point is assumed to be at the far right of the word.

Examples

The following code

a = fi([-1 1],1,8,7);
y = bin(a)
z = a.bin

returns

y = 

		10000000   01111111

z = 

		10000000   01111111
