Clickable list of all text-pattern functions?

3 views (last 30 days)
Is there a complete list of all text-pattern functions such as pattern(), anywhere in the documentation or discussion threads? This would be a great resource, similar to the list of all operators.

Expand the "Match Patterns" section on this documentation page listing all the functions in the Characters and Strings category?

The documentation pages for the individual functions has that same hierarchy information in the left frame.
Another useful technique is to use the Functions list. If you go to the documentation for MATLAB ( just below the blue Help Center header are six links: Documentation, Examples, Functions, Apps, Videos, and Answers. If you click on Functions you can explore functions either by category or alphabetically, going from either & or abs (depending on whether you count symbols or not) to zticks.
The left pane on that page also lets you drill into categories per product and also gives you the ability to filter on extended capabilities. Want to know which of the Characters and Strings functions are supported for C/C++ code generation with MATLAB Coder? Here you go. This search draws upon same information as the Extended Capabilities section at the end of the revelant functions' documentation pages.
