Deleting Empty Rows in Cell Array

3 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I have a cell array like
' '
' '
'1231231'
' '
' '
'1231231'
' '
I want to delete this blank elements and transform this cell array from 7x1 to 2x1. How can I do it? Is there any methods to solve this problem without cellfun or etc.? Thank you.

If the data is in a cell array, mostly likely cellfun() is needed, unless you use for-loop.
strtrim() or strip() can remove the white spaces.
b={' '
' '
'1231231'
' '
' '
'1231231'
' '};
c=strip(b);
index=cellfun(@isempty,c);
d=b(~index)
d = 2×1 cell array
{'1231231'} {'1231231'}

Provide some example data that others can use directly in MATLAB to help you. For example
' '
'1231231'
can not be used directly in MATLAB, while
a={' '
'1231231'}
can so others can use it to provide you with example code.
