The bitToIntegerVector function converts a Bit Vector into an Integer Vector. The Bit vector is treated as a series of 32-bit groups. Each 32-bit group is converted into an Integer as follows: (a) the first bit becomes the sign, and (b) the trailing 31 bits become the magnitude.

Only Bit Vectors, which are an exact multiple of 32 bits in length, can be converted. If a Bit Vector, which is not an even multiple of 32 bits in length is inputted, an error message is returned; otherwise the Bit Vector is converted into an Integer Vector containing one number for every 32 bits in the input Bit vector. For instance, passing a Bit Vector of length 96 will return an Integer Vector of length 3; while, passing a Bit Vector of length 100 will return an error message.


When a Bit Vector has been evolved, using a genetic algorithm, as a genome, the bitToIntegerVector function is an efficient way to convert the Bit Vector genome into an Integer Vector for direct use in solving the target problem
