Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
NumberType Which type of number to encode.
Can be "Float", "Integer" or "UnsignedInteger".
"Float"
Bits The number of bits.
Can be 32 or 64 for float.
Can be 8, 16, 24, 32 or 64 for integers.
32
Text The hex encoded binary data. "14EF"

Result

Returns number or error.

Description

Decodes a number from it's binary representation.
This may be useful for binary protocols with serial ports or sockets.

Examples

Decodes a 32-bit floating point number:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Float"; 32; "79E9F642" )

Decode a 8-bit integer number:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Integer"; 8; "C8")

Decode a 64-bit unsigned integer:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "UnsignedInteger"; 64; "C0BA8A3CD5620400")

Decode big endian 64-bit:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Integer"; 64; "0000000000000001"; 1)
