hexsingle2num(s)
function x = hexsingle2num(s)
%% HEXSINGLE2NUM Convert single precision IEEE hexadecimal string to number.

%   HEXSINGLE2NUM(S), where S is a 8 character string containing
%   a hexadecimal number, returns a double type number
%   equal to the IEEE single precision
%   floating point number it represents.  Fewer than 8
%   characters are padded on the right with zeros.
%
%   If S is a character array, each row is interpreted as a single
%   precision number (and returned as a double).
%
%   NaNs, infinities and denorms are handled correctly.  
%
%   Example:
%       hexsingle2num('40490fdb') returns Pi.
%       hexsingle2num('bf8') returns -1.
%
%   See also HEX2NUM.

% Based on Matlab's hex2num.
% Note: IEEE Standard 754 for floating point numbers
%
%  Floating point numbers are represented as:
%  x = +/- (1+f)*2^e
%
%  doubles: 64 bits
%           Bit 63       (1 bit)  = sign (0=positive, 1=negative)
%           Bit 62 to 52 (11 bits)= exponent biased by 1023
%           Bit 51 to 0  (52 bits)= fraction f of the number 1.f
%  singles: 32 bits
%           Bit 31       (1 bit)  = sign (0=positive, 1=negative)
%           Bit 30 to 23 (8 bits) = exponent biased by 127
%           Bit 22 to 0  (23 bits)= fraction f of the number 1.f
