Convert text representing number in base N to decimal number
D = base2dec(
baseStr to a decimal number and returns it. The input argument
baseStr represents digits of a base-
n number using
numeric characters and, when
n is greater than 10, letters. For example,
n is 12, then
baseStr represents the numbers 9, 10,
and 11 using the characters
'B', and represents the number 12 as the character sequence
'10'. Letters can be either uppercase or lowercase.
Convert a character vector that represents a base-12 value to a decimal number.
baseStr = '1B'; D = base2dec(baseStr,12)
D = 23
Create a string array that represents multiple octal, or base-8, values.
baseStr = ["1777" "172" "16"]
baseStr = 1x3 string array "1777" "172" "16"
Convert the octal values and return a numeric array.
D = base2dec(baseStr,8)
D = 1×3 1023 122 14
baseStr— Text representing base-n numbers
Text representing base-
n numbers, specified as a character array,
cell array of character vectors, or string array.
baseStr is a character array with multiple rows or a cell
array of character vectors, then the output is a numeric column vector.
baseStr is a string array, then the output is a numeric
array that has the same dimensions.
baseStr cannot represent a negative number.
n— Base of input representation
Base of input representation, specified as an integer between 2 and 36.
If the input argument
baseStr represents a value greater than the
value returned by
not return an exact conversion.
