Problem 832. Convert single-precision floating-point number to binary representation

Write a function which takes a scalar single-precision floating-point number as input and returns its binary representation as a string of zeros and ones.

Example 1

x = single( 1.25 );

y = '00111111101000000000000000000000'

Example 2

x = realmax('single'); % = 3.4028235e+038

y = '01111111011111111111111111111111'
