Return exponent of slope of registered data type
extern int ssGetDataTypeFixedExponent (SimStruct *S, DTypeId dataTypeId)
SimStruct representing an S-function block.
Data type ID of the registered data type for which you want to know the exponent.
Fixed-point numbers can be represented as
real-world value = (slope × integer) + bias,
where the slope can be expressed as
slope = fractional slope × 2exponent.
This function returns the exponent of a registered fixed-point data type:
For power-of-two scaling, the exponent is the negative of the fraction length.
If the data type has trivial scaling, including for data types
If the registered data type is
exponent returned is that of the nonoverridden data type.
This function errors out when
To use this function, you must include
fixedpoint.c. For more information, see Structure of the S-Function.
