Decodes a number from it's binary representation.
This may be useful for binary protocols with serial ports or sockets.


Decodes a 32-bit floating point number:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Float"; 32; "79E9F642" )

Decode a 8-bit integer number:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Integer"; 8; "C8")

Decode a 64-bit unsigned integer:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "UnsignedInteger"; 64; "C0BA8A3CD5620400")

Decode big endian 64-bit:

MBS( "Math.DecodeNumber"; "Integer"; 64; "0000000000000001"; 1)
