Please have a look at this code ...
b = 1.00000001;
a = num2str(b,'%.100f')
a = 1.0000000099999999000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
a = num2str(b,'%.10f')
a = 1.0000000100
Why is the result different?
How to obtain the right result in the first case?

Hi Lu,
By default, MATLAB stores all numeric values as double-precision floating point. The fact is, almost all decimal numbers are NOT representable exactly in floating point arithmetic as a double. This is why this issue is completely about precision and the binary form that a double comprises.
If you are interested in converting a double or single input to the exact decimal string, you could refer the following file exchange submission:
Hope the above suggestions help!
