Number of bit errors and bit error rate (BER)

`[`

compares the unsigned binary representation of elements in `number`

,`ratio`

] = biterr(`x,y`

)`x`

to those
in `y`

. The function returns `number`

, the number of
bits that differ in the comparison, and `ratio`

, the ratio of
`number`

to the total number of bits. The function determines the order
in which it compares `x`

and `y`

based on their sizes.
For more information, see the Algorithms section.

`[`

returns the binary comparison result of `number`

,`ratio`

,`individual`

] = biterr(___)`x`

and `y`

as
matrix `individual`

. You can specify any of the input argument
combination from the previous syntaxes.
