Hello all, I want to express my serial date number in the form of 'ddd, mmm, yyyy', with ddd and mmm in lower case, but matlab is giving me back the date with the first letter of the day/month capitalized. How can I change it to lower case?

Can you use the lower function to convert the string to lowercase?
HTH,

lowerDate = lower(datestr(now, 'ddd, mmm, yyyy'))
Or much faster with manual conversion:
function Str = DateStrFormat(Num)
month = ['jan'; 'feb'; 'mar'; 'apr'; 'may'; 'jun'; ...
'jul'; 'aug'; 'sep'; 'oct'; 'nov'; 'dec'];
day = ['mon'; 'tue'; 'wed'; 'thu'; 'fri'; 'sat', 'sun'];
[y, m, d] = datevecmx(Num);
Str = sprintf('%s, %s, %.4d', ...
day(rem(floor(Num), 7) + 1), month(m), y);
