Hi:
I have two strings:
s1='bound10-wall1.out'
s2='bound10-wall24.out'
[C,ia,ib] = intersect(s1,s2, 'stable');
the result is:
C='bound10-wal.t'
however, I think the expected result should be:
'bound10-wall.out'
so I would like to know if there is any mistake with my understanding?
Thanks!
Yu

The letter ‘l’ appears twice in both strings, so is only returned once in the intersect result.
Yopu will get a similar result with:
s1u = unique(s1, 'stable')
s2u = unique(s2, 'stable')
and for the same reason.
