If you have the 3*3 matrix
C = [3 4 5
6 7 9
1 5 8]
and you want to change it to the 3*1 matrix
C = [345
679
158]
so that you can for example sort it in descending order of the rows, how would you do this? Thank you.

Edit: Use Star Strider's answer. It's faster.
C = [3 4 5
6 7 9
1 5 8]
C = 3×3
3 4 5 6 7 9 1 5 8
C = double(string(C).join(''))
C = 3×1
345 679 158

Interesting. This was probably the most obvious method before strings? Easily generalized for an array of single-digit integers:
C*10.^[size(C,2)-1:-1:0]'
