Convert cell array to vector

Hi there,

I have imported time values (i.e 12:57:00) into matlab using the textscan() function.

fid = fopen('time.txt','r') 
out = textscan(fid,'%s') 

However the values are in a cell array, I think?

How can I convert them to a vector? I need to do this because I want to import the data into the dfitool.

Thank you

Accepted answer

I assume you want a datenum vector:

d = datenum(out{1});

If not, please explain the wanted output format.
