Decimal to Binary in "R"

December 5, 2011

Lately…I’ve been learning “R”…that weird programming language aimed for Statistics and Statistical programming…and I really like it…so as usual, I needed to create my own Decimal to Binary application -;)

binary<-function(p_number) {
while (p_number > 0) {
digit<-p_number %% 2
p_number<-floor(p_number / 2)
bsum<-bsum + digit * bexp
bexp<-bexp * 10

p_number<-readline("Decimal number?: ")
cat("Binary: ", bsum)

For this example, I used RStudio.
