Convert decimal number to character vector representing base N number


str = dec2base(d, base)
str = dec2base(d, base, n)


str = dec2base(d, base) converts the nonnegative integer d to the specified base. d must be a nonnegative integer smaller than the value returned by flintmax, and base must be an integer between 2 and 36. The returned argument str is a character vector.

str = dec2base(d, base, n) produces a representation with at least n digits.


The expression dec2base(23, 2) converts 2310 to base 2, returning the character vector '10111'.
