Conversion of a variable from Binary in to Decimal
I have been working within Objectscript for a few months and I am seeking assistance today because all of the help files within the docs.intersystems.com domain are currently down and they wont be back up until next week. (I raised a special ticket for this)
I have been trying to figure out how to convert a binary number 0101001 in to a decimal number using a variable called CNumber and I have tried using the method below and it hasnt worked. I think it may be due to the fact that this assumes an array or some sort. I tried using online hexadecimal calculators and the resulting output is incorrect.
If RNumber is 100
//set RowResult = RowResult + ( $EXTRACT(RNumber(i))* Power )
//set Power = Power * 2
The RowResult = 512
And as you can appreciate this isn't the number I am looking for.
Does anyone know of a reliable way of obtaining the Binary to Decimal result that I desire ?
Thanks in advance
