Manual Fixed-Point Conversion in MATLAB

Assisted floating-point algorithm to fixed-point algorithm conversion

Use the buildInstrumentedMex function to instrument your algorithm for logging minimum and maximum values of all named and intermediate variables. Use the showInstrumentationResults function to propose fixed-point data types based on these logged values.
