Binary columns

This column type stores numbers as IEEE binary numbers.

This differs from the number column that stores the textual representation entered in a column and converts that to a number when you open the DataGraph file. For example, if you enter ‘1/10’ in a binary column it gets converted to 0.1 immediately.

When you import a matlab binary file (saved with the -v4 flag) DataGraph creates binary columns so that the import is completely loss less. To convert a number column to a binary column, use the small gear menu to the right of the column name.
