I have a cell array a = {'a' , 'b' , 'c' ,'d' , 'e'}
I need to convert a cell array to matix with ','(comma in between)
my answer should be a = a,b,c,d,e
how can i do it?
thanks a lot

While technically
a = 'a,b,c,d,e';
is a matrix. Calling it a char array or a string would make more sense.
It certainly begs the question: do you understand the differences (or lack of) between a matrix of numbers and a matrix of characters?

a = {'a' , 'b' , 'c' ,'d' , 'e'};
a = sprintf('%c,',[a{:}]);
a = a(1:end-1);

@Guillaume: nothing wrong with strjoin except that I did not know it ;-)
