Converting decimal to binary and vise versa

49 views (last 30 days)
Hello Matlab Community,
I have a problem. I want to create a function that converts the decimal POSITIVE number that the user gives(maximum number that the user can give is 255) to binary(8-bit accuracy for every number from 0 to 255) and also another function that takes a binary number (max: 11111111 = 255) and converts it to decimal. I'd like to use the ''for'' loop and not functions of matlab like ''dec2bin'' or ''bin2dec''.I've tried a lot but still something doesn't work.
Thanks in Advance

How can I convert the IP(1),IP(2),IP(3),IP(4) decimals to binaries using 'for' loop ? Maybe writing 'for j = 1:4' in line 7, 'dec_nr = IP(j)' in line 8 and 'end' in line 21 ? If I do this I get false results when I try 2-or-less-digit numbers (example:25).What can I do ?

I’ll assume that the form of the binary version is a row vector, B, of eight ones or zeros, and that the "decimal" number is a double precision floating point number, D, whose value is an integer ranging from 0 to 255.
From D to B:
B = zeros(1,8);
for k = 8:-1:1
B(k) = mod(D,2);
D = (D-B(k))/2;
From B to D:
D = sum(B.*(2.^(7:-1:0)));

Very nice ! If I want to do the convertion in a vector of 1 line and 4 columns how to modify your code using the 'for' loop?
