Reverse the strings in a string array and find strings that read the same when reversed. Starting in R2017a, you can create strings using double quotes.

str = ["airport","control tower","radar","runway"]
str = 1x4 string array
    "airport"    "control tower"    "radar"    "runway"

newStr = reverse(str)
newStr = 1x4 string array
    "tropria"    "rewot lortnoc"    "radar"    "yawnur"

tf = (newStr == str)
tf = 1x4 logical array
