dec2hex

Convert decimal to hexadecimal number in string

Syntax

str = dec2hex(d)
str = dec2hex(d, n)

Description

str = dec2hex(d) converts the decimal integer d to its hexadecimal representation stored in a MATLAB® string. d must be a nonnegative integer smaller than 2^52. MATLAB converts noninteger inputs, such as those of class double or char, to their integer equivalents before converting to hexadecimal.

str = dec2hex(d, n) produces a hexadecimal representation with at least n digits.

Examples

To convert decimal 1023 to hexadecimal,

dec2hex(1023)
ans =
    3FF

dec2hex(1023, 6)
ans =
0003FF

Convert 2-by-5 array A to hexadecimal:

A = [3487,    125,  8997,  1433,  189; ...
      771,  84832,   118,  9366,  212];

 A(:)                    dec2hex(A)
ans =                    ans =
     3487                   00D9F
      771                   00303
      125                   0007D
    84832                   14B60
     8997                   02325
      118                   00076
     1433                   00599
     9366                   02496
      189                   000BD
      212                   000D4
