# Trait std::fmt::Binary 1.0.0
[−]
[src]

pub trait Binary { fn fmt(&self, &mut Formatter) -> Result<(), Error>; }

Format trait for the `b`

character.

The `Binary`

trait should format its output as a number in binary.

The alternate flag, `#`

, adds a `0b`

in front of the output.

For more information on formatters, see the module-level documentation.

# Examples

Basic usage with `i32`

:

let x = 42; // 42 is '101010' in binary assert_eq!(format!("{:b}", x), "101010"); assert_eq!(format!("{:#b}", x), "0b101010");Run

Implementing `Binary`

on a type:

use std::fmt; struct Length(i32); impl fmt::Binary for Length { fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { let val = self.0; write!(f, "{:b}", val) // delegate to i32's implementation } } let l = Length(107); println!("l as binary is: {:b}", l);Run
