# char

converts in a character array

### Calling Sequence

```y = char(x)
y = char(st1, st2, st3,...)```

### Arguments

x

a cell array of strings, or an array of ASCII codes.

st1, st2, st3

arrays of strings.

y

a vector of strings (column).

### Description

One input argument :

Given a cell of array of strings `x`, this function returns a vector of strings `y` in which the rows are the concatenated components of corresponding rows of the cell array of strings.

Given an array of ASCII codes `x`, this function returns a array of strings `y` corresponding into ASCII codes. If dimensions of `x` are `[n1, n2, n3, n4,...]`, then returned value has same size as input value except second dimension, i.e. the dimensions of `y` are `[n1, n3, n4,...]`.

More than one input argument :

Given arrays of strings `st1, st2, st3,...`, this function returns a vector of strings in which the rows are the concatenated components of corresponding rows of `st1, st2, st3,...`. In the vector `y` all strings `sti` are completed by blanks to have the same length as the max length of `sti`.

### Examples

```//Example with a hypermatrix of ASCII codes :
x=hypermat([4,2,3],61:84);
y=char(x)
size(x)
size(y)

//Example with more than one argument :
st1="zeros";
st2=["one","two"];
st3=["three"];
y=char(st1,st2,st3)
size(y)

//all strings rows are completed by 'blanks' to have the same length : 6
length(y)```
