Hi everyone,
i have to write in a .yaml file a vector of cells (first cell is a string, then i have a vector of number values and convert all in cell was a simple solution to have different types of variables in the same vector).
i don't know the extension .yaml and so i hope that someone of you could help me :)
I attach an example of what i'm saying:
signal = x; %vector of double
label = ('signal x'); %string
A = mat2cell(signal, ones(1,size(signal,1)), ones(size(signal,2))); %conversion in cell vector
B = cat(2,label,A); %concat string and cell vector in order to forming a row
%now i have to save B in a file with .yaml as extension
Maybe using .yaml file there is another solution to have label and signal in the same row :)
thank you in advance

As of now MATLAB does not support YAML parsing but you could use third party tools like 'yamlmatlab' for the task.
Please refer to the links: yamlmatlab and yamlmatlab github .

I find this third-party module by MartinKoch123 works well for reading and writing Yaml files:
