Recovering String Parts from combined string

Hello,
If the two strings
k1='ab';
and
k2='c';
are concatenated as
k3=strcat(k1,k2);
then how can we recover the string k1 in its entirety from k3? It gives
k3(1)='a'
What can be done to get
k3(1)='ab'
and not k3(1)='a'.
That is, k3(1) should be equal to k1, and not the first part of k1.
Thanks.

This is not possible with simple arrays. You need to use cell arrays for this. For example
k1='ab';
k2='c';
k3 = {k1, k2};
Access them like this
>> k3{1}
ans =
'ab'
>> k3{2}
ans =
'c'
