binary to decimal convertion...

i would like to ask for a help regarding binary to decimal convertion in C++ programming. If possible, the convertion should include float numbering. ex (0.53).... If this can be done, please send me some examples with sourse code... E-mail: steven_cth@yahoo.com ... thank you for anticipation...

    Offhand, I can see two major ways to do this, but I'll present what I think might be the better. In both cases, I assume you have the binary number in a string of some sort (string, char[x], etc)

    Before the radex point (the decimal point is a special case of a radex point for base 10) the algorithm involves starting an accumilator at 0.
    Until you hit the radex point , multiply the accumilator by 2, and then add the value of the next character.

    Thus, 100110 becomes
    x x x x x x
    2(2(2(2(2(2(0)+1)+0)+0)+1)+1)+0 => 40
    (I have marked the parts of the original number with x's)

    (Multiplying and adding can be substituted with shift and or operations)

    When dealing with places after the decimal point, proceed as if there were no radex point. But, count the number of places after the radex point. When the end of the string is reached, divide the total by 2 to the power of the number of spaces.

    Thus
    1.11 (1.75 in decimal) is 2(2(2(2(0)+1)+1)+1) = 7. Two places after the radex point, so divide by 2^2, or 4.
    7/4 = 1.75

    And
    11 (3 in decimal) is (2(0)+1)+1 = 3. Zero places after the point, becoming 3/(2^0), or 3/1 = 3.

    Thanks for the problem. It was interesting. I hope my solution works for you. I'll leave the coding to you, but if you have a specific problem, repost.

    Thank you for your help. Please post some example program here, so that i can understand and see how the program work. Again thank you a lot.
