Form blank-padded character matrix from strings
Note: str2mat is not recommended. Use char instead.
S = str2mat(T1, T2, T3, ...)
S = str2mat(T1, T2, T3, ...) forms the matrix S containing the text strings T1, T2, T3, ... as rows. The function automatically pads each string with blanks in order to form a valid matrix. Each text parameter, Ti, can itself be a string matrix. This allows the creation of arbitrarily large string matrices. Empty strings are significant.
x = str2mat('36842', '39751', '38453', '90307'); whos x Name Size Bytes Class x 4x5 40 char array x(2,3) ans = 7
