I have array of strings that some of them have "-1" at the end. Like "sectioned-1".
How can I get rid of "-1" from the end of thos strings?

easiest way is probably with:
newarray = regexprep(yourstringarray, '-1$', '');
works with cell arrays of char vectors as well.

play with positions. For eg:
S = 'sectioned-1';
S = S(1:end-2)
For an array, write this in a simple for loop.
