I'm converting an algorithm that works perfectly in floating point

into fixed point. At one point in the fixed-point code, I have:

Ty = numerictype(true,16,15);

Tacc = numerictype(true,40,31);

Facc = fimath('RoundMode', 'floor', ...

'OverflowMode', 'saturate', ...

'ProductMode', 'SpecifyPrecision', ...

'ProductWordLength', 32, ...

'ProductFractionLength', 31, ...

'SumMode', 'SpecifyPrecision', ...

'SumWordLength', 40, ...

'SumFractionLength', 31, ...

'CastBeforeSum', 1);

k = 1;

accf = fi(acc(k,:)/(2^15),Ty,Facc);

simlogf.main.state = fi(zeros(8,nsamples),Ty,Facc);

simlogf.main.state(1,:) = accf(k,:);

Everything works until the last statement. The size of

simlogf.main.state is 8 X nsamples before the last statement (as it

should be), and 1 X nsamples after the last statement! acc is a

previously assigned matrix 4 X nsamples of values in the range 2^15

to -2^15+1.

Why is the fixed-point array changing into a fixed point row vector?

- That should be
"accf (rather than acc) is a previously assigned matrix 4 X nsamples

of values in the range 2^15 to -2^15+1." Everything else is true,

and the problem still remains.

- Dang, I'm tired! The original post was correct; the problem still
exists.
