convert character array to cell

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I'm trying to generate a file list using a system command.
[status ,out]=system('dir mat')
The format of the variable is in char format. How can I save this in a cell, to display each line in a new row of the cell.

You can use strsplit to split the string into cells. For your output, you can use the line feed character char(10) as the delimiter, so a new cell is created for each new line.
out_cell = strsplit(out,char(10))';
