Hi,
i have the following problem.
I need to convert an integer into a string and i want a leading zero.
3.1 > 03.1 21.2222 > 21.2 1 > 01.0
I tried : i=3.1 disp(['i=',num2str(i,'%02.1d')]) but the result is i=3.1e+000
I tried i=3.1 disp(['i=',num2str(i,'%02.1f)]) but the result is i=3.1 without the leading zero?
Any idea whats worng here?
THX
