Convert decimal to base N number in string

Calling Sequence

str = dec2base(d, base)
str = dec2base(d, base, n)



matrix of strings corresponding to "base" representation


1-by-1 matrix of doubles, positive integer value, the base


matrix of doubles, positive integer values


str = dec2base(d, base) converts the nonnegative integer values of d to the specified base base.

d must have a nonnegative integers smaller than 2^52, and base must be an integer between 2 and 36.

The returned argument str is a matrix of strings.

str = dec2base(d, base, n) produces a representation with at least n digits.


for b = 2:36
 disp( dec2base(666, b) )
