# oct

Octal representation of stored integer of fi object

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

$real\text{-}worldvalue={2}^{-fractionlength}×storedinteger$

or, equivalently as

$real\text{-}worldvalue=\left(slope×storedinteger\right)+bias$

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```
