Organizing Data in Cell Arrays
Cell arrays are useful for organizing data that consists of different sizes or kinds of data. Cell arrays are better than structures for applications where
As an example of accessing multiple fields with one statement, assume that your data consists of
For many applications, the best data construct for this data is a structure. However, if you routinely access only the first two fields of information, then a cell array might be more convenient for indexing purposes.
This example shows how to access the first and second elements of the cell array
This example shows how to access the first and second elements of the structure
varargout arguments are examples of the utility of cell arrays as substitutes for comma-separated lists. Create a 3-by-3 numeric array
Now apply the
normest (2-norm estimate) function to
A, and assign the function output to individual cells of
All of the output values from the function are stored in separate cells of
B(1) contains the norm estimate;
B(2) contains the iteration count.
