binary {binaryLogic}R Documentation

Binary digit.

Description

Create objects of type binary.

Usage

binary(n, signed=FALSE, littleEndian=FALSE)

Arguments

n

length of vector. Number of bits

signed

TRUE or FALSE. Unsigned by default. (two's complement)

littleEndian

if TRUE. Big Endian if FALSE.

Details

The binary number is represented by a logical vector. The bit order usually follows the same endianess as the byte order. How to read:

The Big Endian endianess stores its MSB at the lowest adress. The Little Endian endianess stores its MSB at the highest adress.

e.g. b <-binary(8).

No floating-point support.

Value

a vector of class binary of length n. By default filled with zeros(0).

Examples

b <- binary(8)
summary(b)
b <- binary(16, signed=TRUE)
summary(b)
b <- binary(32, littleEndian=TRUE)
summary(b)
