zzmice_str(x)
%-Abstract
%
%   ZZMICE_STR enforces an input as a string (i.e, an array of 
%   characters) or string cell, converting the cell to a 
%   character array.

%-I/O
%
%   Given:
%
%      x   an input to confirm as a character array representing 
%          a scalar string, vector or strings, or a string cell.
%
%   the call:
%
%      y = zzmice_str(x)
%
%   returns:
%
%      y   the character array form of 'x'
%
%-Examples
%
%   None.
%
%-Particulars
%
%   This routine exists to support the NAIF MATLAB-CSPICE interface.
