How do you output an frprintf from a for loop all on the same line?

Asked by Jake

input=('Enter number')

for i=1:2:length(name)

a=name(i:1+1);

switch a

case '12'

num='twelve';

case '13'

num='thirteen';

etc.

fprintf(Final num is:%s',num)

I want the output to be: Final num is: twelve thirteen etc. But it comes out: Final num is: twelve Final num is: thirteen

Before the loop:

count = 0;

inside the loop:

count = count + 1;

and instead of assigning to num, assign to num{count}

Move the fprintf() to after the loop, and change it to:

fprintf('Final num is:');
fprintf(' %s', num{:});
fprintf('\n');

You might want to markup the question to make exactly clear what you ask for. (Try the [?Help]-button above the text box.

    %%
    for ii = 1 : 3
        num = 'twelve';
        fprintf('Final num is: %s ', num )
    end
    fprintf('\n')

displays

    Final num is: twelve Final num is: twelve Final num is: twelve
