bin2dec

Convert binary number string to decimal number

Syntax

bin2dec(binarystr)

Description

bin2dec(binarystr) interprets the binary string binarystr and returns the equivalent decimal number. binarystr must represent a nonnegative integer value smaller than or equal to 2^52.

bin2dec ignores any space (' ') characters in the input string.

Examples

Binary 010111 converts to decimal 23:

bin2dec('010111')
ans =
    23

Because space characters are ignored, this string yields the same result:

bin2dec(' 010   111 ')
ans =
    23
