Owning Class: support
Requires: MathScript RT Module
c = int8(a)
Converts the input elements to 8-bit signed integers.
|a||Specifies a numeric scalar, vector, or matrix.|
|c||Returns elements of a as 8-bit signed integers. c is a scalar, vector, or matrix of the same size as a. If a is a complex number, this function converts the real and imaginary parts of the number separately and then returns a complex number that consists of those parts. To return the 8-bit signed representation of a when the input is complex, use the real function to extract the real part of a, then use the int8 function to convert the real part.|
If an element in a is greater than 2^7-1, the corresponding element in c is 2^7-1. If an element in a is less than -2^7, the corresponding element in c is -2^7.
