oct

Octal representation of stored integer of fi object

Syntax

oct(a)

Description

oct(a) returns the stored integer of fi object a in octal format as a string. oct(a) is equivalent to a.oct.

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 = oct(a)
z = a.oct

returns

y =

		200   177

z =

		200   177
