How to change a certain array cell depending on its length
1 view (last 30 days)
I currently have this very simple code:
if strlength(A) >= 250
A = ;
My objective is for every cell that A has which is larger than 250 characters, make that specific array row 0.
e.g. ( The 12th row of array A has more than 250 characters in it, thus it should become 0 after the code runs)
However, my problem is that the program just skips over the if statement as if it's false when in reality I have characters which go beyond 250.
I tried implementing the cellfun into this as well just in case every row of the array isn't being checked.
if cellfun(@strlength, A)>=250
A = ;
but still the same problem.
I know the if statement isn't false because upon running just
strlength(A) >= 250
I have a whole list of 0's (which corespond to characters under 250) and some 1's (which are those above 250)

mask = strlength(A) > 250;
A(mask) = cellfun(@(i) '', A(mask), 'uniform', 0);
