I have to convert the following binary number to decimal: 11000101.101
I am using
bin2dec('binary number')
but is does not work with a radix point

This is easy to do yourself:
>> str = '11000101.101';
>> idx = str~='.';
>> vec = 1:sum(idx);
>> pwr = sum(str(idx)==str(vec)) - vec;
>> sum((str(idx)-'0') .* 2.^pwr)
ans =
197.625

parts = strsplit(str, '.') ;
dec2bin(parts{1}) + dec2bin(parts{2})/2^length(parts{2})

That's what I get for posting at 3 in the morning ;-)
