    Default Re: Float to binary

    Your question is not clear. What do you try to achieve? What do you mean by converting to binary? The data is already in binary format in memory. All the data inside a computer is binary.
    Do you want to display it as binary? In this case how do you know what you get is not right? Give us an example.
