stripscaling

Stored integer of fi object

Syntax

I = stripscaling(a)

Description

I = stripscaling(a) returns the stored integer of a as a fi object with binary-point scaling, zero fraction length and the same word length and sign as a.

Examples

Stripscaling is useful for converting the value of a fi object to its stored integer value.

fipref('NumericTypeDisplay','short', ...
       'FimathDisplay','none');
format long g
a = fi(0.1,true,48,47) 

a =
 
         0.100000000000001
      s48,47
b = stripscaling(a) 

b =
 
            14073748835533
      s48,0
bin(a)

ans =

000011001100110011001100110011001100110011001101

bin(b)

ans =

000011001100110011001100110011001100110011001101

Notice that the stored integer values of a and b are identical, while their real-world values are different.
