I'm trying to find the unique elements inside a string array (attached, "datestrings_of_problem_times.mat").
When I run this (after loading "datestrings_of_problem_times.mat") ;
[datestrings_of_interest, indices, b] = unique(datestrings_of_problem_times);
The output "datestrings_of_interest" (attached, "datestrings_of_interest.mat") has an empty string ( [""] ) as its first element, but there are no empty strings inside my initial string array.
And, the output "indices" (attached, "indices") has 50877 as its first element. But, my string array has 50876 elements in the first place. So, the unique function somehow checked whether the 50877th element of a 50876x10 string array was unique or not. What am I missing / how could I fix this?
