iscellstr

Determine if input is cell array of character vectors

Syntax

tf = iscellstr(A)

Description

example

tf = iscellstr(A) returns logical 1 (true) if A is a cell array of character vectors (or an empty cell array), and logical 0 (false) otherwise. A cell array of character vectors is a cell array where every cell contains a character vector.

Examples

collapse all

Create different arrays, and then determine if they are cell arrays of character vectors.

Test a cell array of character vectors.

C1 = {'Smith','Chung','Morales'; ...
      'Sanchez','Peterson','Adams'}
C1 = 2×3 cell array
    'Smith'      'Chung'       'Morales'
    'Sanchez'    'Peterson'    'Adams'  

tf = iscellstr(C1)
tf = logical
   1

Every cell of C1 contains a character vector, so iscellstr returns 1.

Convert C1 to a string array and test it.

str = string(C1)
str = 2×3 string array
    "Smith"      "Chung"       "Morales"
    "Sanchez"    "Peterson"    "Adams"  

tf = iscellstr(str)
tf = logical
   0

str is a string array, not a cell array, so iscellstr returns 0.

Test a cell array that contains elements of different data types.

X = rand(1,3);
C2 = {'red','blue',X}
C2 = 1×3 cell array
    'red'    'blue'    [1×3 double]

tf = iscellstr(C2)
tf = logical
   0

C2 has a cell that does not contain a character vector, so iscellstr returns 0.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input array, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array. A can be any data type.
