Calling Sequence




cell array, the components of c must have the same type and can be scalars or matrices




cell2mat(c) returns a matrix which is the concatenation of all components of the cell array c.

All components of c must have the same data type (strings or doubles or integers or booleans). For each row i of c, cell2mat of c, cell2mat concatenates all the components of the ith row of the cell array c.

Note that if the components of the cell array input c are strings then cell2mat(c) returns a column vector of strings concatenation.
