A cell array is a data type with indexed data containers called
cells, where each cell can contain any type of data. Cell arrays commonly
contain either lists of text strings, combinations of text and numbers,
or numeric arrays of different sizes. Refer to sets of cells by enclosing
indices in smooth parentheses,
(). Access the contents
of cells by indexing with curly braces,

Structures and Cell Arrays.

Create a cell array using the
Read and write data to and from a cell array.
Add cells, columns, and rows, to a cell array.
Remove data from individual cells, and delete entire cells from a cell array.
Combine cell arrays by concatenation or nesting.
These examples show several ways to pass data from a cell array to a function that does not recognize cell arrays as inputs.
Initialize and allocate memory for a cell array.
A cell array is a data type with indexed data containers called cells. Each cell can contain any type of data.
This example compares cell and structure arrays, and shows how to store data in each type of array. Both cell and structure arrays allow you to store data of different types and sizes.
If you combine arrays in which one or more is a cell array, the resulting array is a cell array.
Access data in arrays stored within cells of cell arrays.
