Hello, I am taking a class on GPS navigation. Our homework is to construct a signal based on 10 initial condition values and use modelo-2 arithmetic to get each subsequent value. I have gotten this to work. However, I am only able to see the final 10 values the way I have it set up. I am trying to find a way to store each "k" value before the next iteration begins so that I will have a vector of all the values. I have it set up for 32 iterations, but eventually need about 7000 so an automatic process is necessary. Here is my code:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[k10]=input('Enter the value of intial k-10: ');

[k9]=input('Enter the value of initial k-9: ');

[k8]=input('Enter the value of initial k-8: ');

[k7]=input('Enter the value of initial k-7: ');

[k6]=input('Enter the value of initial k-6: ');

[k5]=input('Enter the value of initial k-5: ');

[k4]=input('Enter the value of initial k-4: ');

[k3]=input('Enter the value of initial k-3: ');

[k2]=input('Enter the value of initial k-2: ');

[k1]=input('Enter the value of initial k-1: ');

%k1-k10 represent the initial condition the 10 chips used to construct

%different PRN numbers.

%For PRN 22: k10=1, k9=1, k8=0, k7=0, k6=1, k5=1, k4=1, k3=1, k2=1, k1=1

%For PRN 27: k10=0, k9=0, k8=1, k7=1, k6=1, k5=1, k4=1, k3=1, k2=1, k1=1

N=32;

count=1;

%N is the maximum number of iterations requested and counts each iteration

%in increments of 1.

while count<=N

if k6+k9==1

k=1;

elseif k6+k9==2

k=0;

elseif k6+k9==0

k=0;

end

%This if-else statement resolves the modulo-2 arithmetic requirement for

%the PRN generator.

k10=k9;

k9=k8;

k8=k7;

k7=k6;

k6=k5;

k5=k4;

k4=k3;

k3=k2;

k2=k1;

k1=k;

%The above equalities represent the Linear Feedback Shift Register. Note

%that, after each iteration, the values shift from a position of k-j to a

%position of k-j-1 until the value falls off after the k-10 position.

count=count+1;

%count=count+1 moves each moves the count to the next iteration, ending at

%N iterations.

end

Thanks for any help. This is killing me.
