I have a cell called C containing many strings, of which some are very long and it's hard to view in one line. I want to be able to call these strings and print them but in multiple lines: str=C{n,1}; fprintf('%s\n',str)
How I would be able to do that? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PerLine = 80;
pattern = sprintf('.{1,%d}', PerLine);
str = regexp(C{n,1}, pattern, 'match');
fprintf('%s\n', str{:});
