Storing workspace variables that match the specified regular expressions.

3 views (last 30 days)
How do we store workspace variables identifed using regular expressions.
Consider the following example below...
ex_1 = 5;
ex_2 = 3;
i_i = 4;
%if I do this
whos -regexp ^ex_[1]*|^i.\d+
Name Size Bytes Class Attributes ex_1 1x1 8 double ex_2 1x1 8 double
%it works
%but if I do this
s = whos(-regexp ^ex_[1]*|^i.\d+);
Invalid expression. When calling a function or indexing a variable, use parentheses. Otherwise, check for mismatched delimiters.
%it throws an error
