how to print
a = 0.1005:0.1:1.1005
as, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, ... 1.0 for tickllabes?
I used sprintf command but the optput is not as expected.
ytl = sprintf('%.2f', 0.1005:0.1:1.1005);
ytl
0.100.200.300.400.500.600.700.800.901.001.10
How to give this as input to xticklabels?

x = 0.1005:0.1:1.1005;
y = randn(size(x));
plot(x, y)
grid
% for x tick format
xtickformat('%.2f')
% Conversion of array to char array
ytl = sprintf('%.2f\n', 0.1005:0.1:1.1005)
ytl =
'0.10 0.20 0.30 0.40 0.50 0.60 0.70 0.80 0.90 1.00 1.10 '

See above for using sprintf. Beware that you may lose the precision of xtick label.
