This function converts fixed-point numbers in Qa.b format to decimal where "a" is the number of bits to the left of the binary point not including the sign bit, and "b" is the number of bits to the right of the decimal point. The input format is either binary or hexadecimal (hex is the default). The function is called by the command "q2dec(x,a,b,format)" where x is a string representing the input number in Qa.b format, "a" is "a" is the number of bits to the left of the binary point not including the sign bit, "b" is the number of bits to the right of the decimal point, and format is either 'bin' or 'hex' (format is optional, 'hex' is the default).
For example, the following command can convert the hex number 0x4000 in Q0.15 (also called Q15) format to decimal:
The following command can convert the binary number 1100000000000000 in Q0.15 (also called Q15) format to decimal:
Several numbers can be converted in one call by placing each number on a row of the input matrix:
>> x = ['8000'; 'C000'; '0000'; '4000'];
