mxIsCell (C and Fortran)

Determine whether input is cell array

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
bool mxIsCell(const mxArray *pm);

Fortran Syntax

integer*4 mxIsCell(pm)
mwPointer pm



Pointer to an mxArray


Logical 1 (true) if pm points to an array having the class mxCELL_CLASS, and logical 0 (false) otherwise.


Use mxIsCell to determine whether the specified array is a cell array.

In C, calling mxIsCell is equivalent to calling:

mxGetClassID(pm) == mxCELL_CLASS

In Fortran, calling mxIsCell is equivalent to calling:

mxGetClassName(pm) .eq. 'cell'

    Note   mxIsCell does not answer the question "Is this mxArray a cell of a cell array?" An individual cell of a cell array can be of any type.
