Joins cell array into a single string, with delimiter. Small, vectorized and fast.

This simple function takes a cell array of strings and joins them, using a delimiter.

It doesn't use any FORs or slow operations so it's useful for performance-critical code.

Have you seen: ? This C-Mex pre-allocates the output to gain more speed. But even in pure Matlab this might be faster than expanding the input cell string:
delimiter = strrep(delimiter, '\', '\\');
s = sprintf(['%s', delimiter], c{:});
