suggestion: please put an option to display variable data type in head function

2 views (last 30 days)
head function allows the display the first rows of table that is very convenient.
But the curent implementation does not display the data type of each variable.
Thus propose an implementation of an option for head function that displays the data type of each variable of a table .
Example
date city visitor
-----------------------------------------------
datetime categorical double
------------------------------------------------

I suggest that you post in https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/573463-what-is-missing-from-matlab-2-the-next-decade-edition
However submitting an enhancement request is good: Mathworks puts priority on changes that numerous people submit requests for.

This is not even a question.
Answers is not a place to post feature requests for MATLAB. Answers is entirely composed of volunteers who also use MATLAB. So we cannot do anything with your post, other than comment on if it makes sense. (Honestly, I don't care that much either way. In my eyes, it just adds complexity.)
If you want to post a feature request, you need to contact MathWorks directly.
You should surely know all of this, having asked what, 367 questions so far? Admittedly, many of those questions were asked multiple times, so there were probably only 150 distinct questions.
