# num2int

Convert number to signed integer

## Syntax

y = num2int(q,x)
[y1,y,...] = num2int(q,x1,x,...)

## Description

y = num2int(q,x) uses q.format to convert numeric x to an integer.

[y1,y,...] = num2int(q,x1,x,...) uses q.format to convert numeric values x1, x2,... to integers y1,y2,...

## Examples

All the two's complement 4-bit numbers in fractional form are given by

```x = [0.875 0.375 -0.125 -0.625
0.750 0.250 -0.250 -0.750
0.625 0.125 -0.375 -0.875
0.500 0.000 -0.500 -1.000];

q=quantizer([4 3]);

y = num2int(q,x)

y =

7     3    -1    -5
6     2    -2    -6
5     1    -3    -7
4     0    -4    -8
```

expand all

### Algorithms

When q is a fixed-point quantizer object, f is equal to fractionlength(q), and x is numeric

$y=x×{2}^{f}$

When q is a floating-point quantizer object, y = x. num2int is meaningful only for fixed-point quantizer objects.
