Determine whether numeric type represents a fixed-point data type with slope-and-bias scaling


indication = isscalingslopebias(numericType) returns 1 (true) if the Simulink.NumericType object numericType represents a fixed-point data type with nontrivial slope-and-bias scaling and 0 (false) otherwise. A slope-and-bias fixed-point type has trivial scaling if the slope is an integer power of two and the bias is zero.

In Simulink®, a Simulink.NumericType object represents a data type that you can share between different data items in a model. For more information, see Simulink.NumericType.
