cat

Class: matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous
Package: matlab.mixin

Concatenation for heterogeneous arrays

Syntax

C = cat(dim,A,B)

Description

C = cat(dim,A,B) concatenates objects A and B along the dimension dim. The class of object arrays A and B must be derived from the same root class of a matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous hierarchy.

  • If A and B are of the same class, the class of the resulting array is unchanged.

  • If A and B are of different subclasses of a common superclass that is derived from matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous, then the result is a heterogeneous array and the array's class is that of the most specific superclass shared by A and B.

The cat method is sealed in the class matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous and, therefore, you cannot override it in subclasses.

Input Arguments

dim

Scalar dimension along which to concatenate arrays

A

Object array derived from the same root subclass of matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous as B

B

Object array derived from the same root subclass of matlab.mixin.Heterogeneous as A

Output Arguments

C

Array resulting from the specified concatenation. The class of this array is that of the most specific superclass shared by A and B.
