just be carful, what you see in the screen is not always the
actual binary value of the number.

EDU>> n=rand(1,1)
n =

EDU>> format long
EDU>> n
n =

EDU>> num2strexact(n)



One way to convert to string: decide on the number of
digits you want, and you can use sprintf:

EDU>> s=sprintf('%3.10f',n)


EDU>> s=sprintf('%3.16f',n)

or you can use num2str second argument:

EDU>> num2str(n,10)

EDU>> num2str(n,16)
