# num2cell

converts an array into a cell array

### Calling Sequence

`y=num2cell(x [,dims])`

### Arguments

x

a real, an integer, a boolean or a string matrix

dims

a scalar or a vector of positive integers

y

a cell

### Description

`num2cell` converts `x` which is a real, a boolean, or a string matrix into a cell. If `dims` is not mentioned, `y` will have the same size as `x`.

But if `dims` is present, the dimensions of `x` mentioned in `dims` will be reduced to 1. Moreover, the dimensions of `y` components will be equal to the dimensions sizes of `x` whose numbers are in `dims` vector.

For example, if size(`x`)=[2 3 4 5 6] and `dims`=[2 4], then size(`y`)= [2 1 4 1 6], that is the sizes of the second and the fourth dimensions are reduced to 1. And size(`y`(i))= [1 3 1 5 1], which means that the sizes of the second and the fourth dimensions are equal to the sizes of the second and the fourth ones of `x`.

### Examples

```A=[1 2; 3 4]
num2cell(A)
M = hypermat([2 3 2 2],1:24)
c=num2cell(M,[1 2])
size(c)
size(c(1).entries)

A=["a", "b"; "c" "d"]
num2cell(A)```
