How to apply function "strrep" to multiple substrings

9 views (last 30 days)
Hi there,
It would be my great pleasure if anyone could assist me with the following error, caused after I applied strrep:
newIDFFile = strrep(readIDFFile, {'@@P1@@', num2str(u_gen_s)}, {'@@P2@@', num2str(u_gen_w)}, {'@@P3@@', num2str(u_gen_e)}, {'@@P4@@', num2str(u_gen_n)});
Also, I tried the following format:
newIDFFile = strrep(readIDFFile, '@@P1@@', num2str(u_gen_s), '@@P2@@', num2str(u_gen_w), '@@P3@@', num2str(u_gen_e), '@@P4@@', num2str(u_gen_n));
while the error message is:
Error using strrep
Too many input arguments.

It would be also my great pleasure if you could help me with the same question, while I need to write strrep for more than 32 substrings. It shows me the following error:
Error using objective (line 2)
Error: File: building_model.m Line: 260 Column: 11
Nesting of {, [, and ( cannot exceed a depth of 32.
Thanks!
