Return the binary representation of the input number as a string.
For negative numbers, if width is not given, a minus sign is added to the front. If width is given, the two’s complement of the number is returned, with respect to that width.
In a two’s-complement system negative numbers are represented by the two’s complement of the absolute value. This is the most common method of representing signed integers on computers [R16]. A N-bit two’s-complement system can represent every integer in the range to .
num : int
width : int, optional
bin : str
binary_repr is equivalent to using base_repr with base 2, but about 25x faster.

>>> np.binary_repr(3) '11' >>> np.binary_repr(-3) '-11' >>> np.binary_repr(3, width=4) '0011'
The two’s complement is returned when the input number is negative and width is specified:
>>> np.binary_repr(-3, width=4) '1101'
