argument list of a function handel

16 views (last 30 days)
I can pass the elements of a list to a function handle:
>> f=@(x,y)x+y
>> f(1,2)
ans = 3
>> x=[1 2]
>> f(x(1),x(2))
ans = 3
But how can I pass the list to the function handle instead of explicitly specifying each element of it? I tried the following but neither worked:
>> f(x)
??? Input argument "y" is undefined.
>> f(x(:))
??? Input argument "y" is undefined.
Thanks for help!

xcell = num2cell(x);
f(xcell{:});
Note that if you are not using scalars, the approach would need to be modified.
