` dec_to_bin` is a function that takes a number as input and converts it to a vector representing the binary form of the number with the MSB to the right.

## Syntax

`BIN = dec_to_bin(DEC)`

## Argument descriptions

`DEC`: The number to be converted to a vector representing the binary form of`DEC`. This must be a non-negative integer.

## Examples

Some basic examples of how dec_to_bin works.

```
>> dec_to_bin(5)
ans =
1 0 1
>> dec_to_bin(6)
ans =
0 1 1
```
