# dec2bin

Convert decimal number to character vector representing binary number

## Syntax

str = dec2bin(d)
str = dec2bin(d,n)

## Description

str = dec2bin(d) returns the binary representation of d as a character vector. d must be a nonnegative integer. If d is greater than the value returned by flintmax, then dec2bin might not return an exact representation of d.

str = dec2bin(d,n) produces a binary representation with at least n bits.

The output of dec2bin is independent of the endian settings of the computer you are using.

## Examples

Decimal 23 converts to binary 010111:

dec2bin(23)
ans =
10111
