getting rid of empty cells in a cell array

214 views (last 30 days)
can you please help me with this? I have the following cell array
x = {1,[],'ciao',[],[]};
I want to exclude the empty cells, and get another array like this:
y = {1,'ciao'};
Thank you!

First, check which cells that are empty using the function isempty. Since isempty does not accept cell arrays as input, you can use the cellfun function. This will call a function with each element of a cell array:
index = cellfun(@isempty, x) == 0;
y = x(index)

Try y=x(~cellfun('isempty',x))
