Suppose that I have the cell array C of size (3,5) that have these elements:
C= { 1x5cell; 1x5cell ;1x5cell}
where C(1,1)=
[0,1] [1,0] [1,1] [1,1] [0,0]
and C(1,2)=
[1,1] [1,0] [0,1] [0,0] [0,0]
and C(1,3)=
[1,0] [0,0] [0,1] [0,0] [0,1]
So, is there any way to make C shown in this way:
[0,1] [1,0] [1,1] [1,1] [0,0];
[1,1] [1,0] [0,1] [0,0] [0,0];
[1,0] [0,0] [0,1] [0,0] [0,1]
I hope that clear ! I attached the original matrix also.

If you mean in the default display in command window, no...(+)
You can always write a custom fprintf statement or little function to do so, however.
(+) It is theoretically possible, but would require rewriting/overloading builtin routines that would be for the purpose of the forum I believe, "out of scope"

No. I just want to make C.mat that I attached in the question to be similar to this matrix (Aug1).

Did you try celldisp()?
MATLAB displays how it displays. If you don't like it, you can't change it. It's pretty much fixed, except for things like how many decimal places or white space are shown, which you can adjust with the "format()" function.
If you want it formatted a certain way when you display it, you'd have to write your own function to use fprintf() to display it in a fashion that you want.

Thank you for your answer but this is not what I want. I just want the matrix C.mat to be similar to Aug1.mat.I attached them here.
