MATLAB: How to convert a string to binary and then from the binary back to string

string to binary and back

how to convert a string to binary and then from the binary back to string
s = 'Mary had a little lamb';
binary = dec2bin(s);
str = bin2dec(binary)
but str i obtained is not string… how to get the string back… also, when i do above i get binary as char variable…
binary =
1001101
1100001
1110010
1111001
0100000
1101000
1100001
1100100
0100000
is it possible, to get is as a vector, with double datatype and i should be able to get that back as string…
binary =
1 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0

Best Answer

  • binary = reshape(dec2bin(s, 8).'-'0',1,[])
    str = char(bin2dec(reshape(char(binary+'0'), 8,[]).'))
