How to convert a matrix of double to int?
2,927 views (last 30 days)
I need to convert my matrix [648x2400 double] into integers value to use a mRMR function, but I do not know how to do that. I have tried to convert by uint8(matrix) or int8(matrix) but it does not give integers... And I always have this note: "Undefined function 'mrmr_mid_d' for input arguments of type 'int8' " (or double, or uint, and so on) can someone help me? thank you

I'm not sure what you are saying. Do you mean that:
X = 10+randn(16,16);
X = uint8(X);
Does not result in integers for the output in X?
The error message you report ("Undefined function 'mrmr_mid_d' for input arguments of type 'int8' ") just sounds like MATLAB cannot recognize the function, mrmr_mid_d.m.
You need to add the folder containing that function to the MATLAB path. You can launch
to add that folder.

It's possible that mrmr_mid_d.m isn't on your path; the other possibility is that it doesn't actually accept integer data types as input, but integer values stored as double arrays. In this case, you need to round your data in some manner (see round, ceil, floor, fix, etc)
x = rand(10)*10;
x = round(x);
mrmr_mid_d(x); % or whatever the syntax is...

To convert an array of type “double” to an integer type, you can use a function such as “int64”, which converts the input to a 64-bit integer. For example, consider the following:
x_double = [1 2 3];
x_int = int64(x)
