Hello. I want write a code which can performe to generate matrix automaticlly. In the last while loop in my code I want to define that the 3:rd column and 2:nd row is =5 and the 2:nd column and 2:nd row is = 7 and the rest of the row tow is = 0 when we do not have any more number. Plz help me to solve this issue.
My code
% -------------------------------------
stra= num2str(a); %#########convert (a) to string format
strb=num2str(b); %#########convert (b) to string format
sizea= length(stra);
sizeb= length(strb);
% M=zeros(sizea, sizeb);
if sizea > sizeb
ncols = sizea
M= zeros (nrows, ncols)
while sizea >= 1
M(1, sizea) = str2num(stra(1, sizea)) %(stra(stra(1), size(a)))
M=zeros (nrows, ncols)
while sizeb >= 1
M(2, sizeb) = str2num(strb(1,sizeb))

What is the expected output in your example with a=386 and b=75?

Your increment is missing which support to allow application of while. Both if and else are inner within wile loop as well as to end by end.

Do you want to put the digits of a "a" and "b" into the elements of a matrix? The you can use this code:
M = num2str([a; b]) - '0';
M(M==' ' - '0') = 0
M =
3 8 6
0 7 5
