if i try to make a string 111100011 into 1111, 000, 11
function [indi] = SeparatePattern (a) k=1; for i=1:length(a) while strcmp(a(i),a(i+1)) if strcmp(a(i),'0') indi(1,k)='0'; else indi(1,k)='1'; end end while a(i)~=a(i+1) k=k+1; end end
why i keep getting an error
Attempted to access a(2); index out of bounds because numel(a)=1?
What exactly are you passing for "a" ? Are you invoking
t = SeparatePattern(111100011)
? If you are then you are passing a single decimal number (roughly one billion) to the function instead of a string. To pass a string in you would need to invoke
t = SeparatePattern('111100011')
Also take note that you loop "i" from 1 to the length of a. Consider the last iteration, when "i" has already become length(a), so a(i) is the final element in "a". Inside the "for" you have
but if a(i) is the last element of "a", then a(i+1) is going to be past the last element of "a" and you would get exactly the kind of error you saw.
