Sort elements in cell array in descending order

5 views (last 30 days)
I hava a cell containing three row vectors and I would like to sort each vector in descending order.
Other than using a loop, is there a way to do this with the cellfun function? bc it automatically does it in ascending order.
This is the code that I used using cellfun.
thank you!
new_cell_array = cellfun(@sort, cell_array, 'UniformOutput', false);

fun = @(v) sort(v,'descend');
new_cell_array = cellfun(fun, cell_array, 'UniformOutput', false);

perfect thank you!
so for my learning, @(v) enables me to use/specify an existing function prior to inputting into cellfun?
