# dec

Unsigned decimal representation of stored integer of `fi` object

`dec(a)`

## Description

`dec(a)` returns the stored integer of `fi` object `a` in unsigned decimal format as a string. `dec(a)` is equivalent to `a.dec`.

.

Fixed-point numbers can be represented as

$real\text{-}worldvalue={2}^{-fractionlength}×storedinteger$

or, equivalently as

$real\text{-}worldvalue=\left(slope×storedinteger\right)+bias$

The stored integer is the raw binary number, in which the binary point is assumed to be at the far right of the word.

## Examples

The code

```a = fi([-1 1],1,8,7); y = dec(a) z = a.dec```

returns

```y = 128 127 z = 128 127```
