Dear All,

I have a real array A. I want to define a struct array S to save the colculation reslut of element in A to the corresponding struct.

For example, A = [1 0.2 3 0.4 5 6]. I want to define strucy array S (with length 6) to save the calaulation result of elements in A.

S(1) = struct('A.1', A(1), 'Result', A(1)^2);

S(3) = struct('A.3', A(3), 'Result', A(3)^2);

S(4) = struct('A.4', A(4), 'Result', A(4)^2);

S(6) = struct('A.6', A(6), 'Result', A(6)^2);

I only want to save these 4 values.

My question is:

1). How to define S?

2). How to assign values to S?

Thanks a lot.

Benson

Are you required to store your data in a struct array, or would a cell array be acceptable?

c = cell(1, 10);

for k = 1:10

c{k} = magic(k);

end

A.1 is not a valid struct field name.

With something this simple, I probably wouldn't use a struct array.

A = [1 0.2 3 0.4 5 6]

Asquared = A.^2

If you wanted to store these in one array rather than two, since the result of the operation is the same type and size as the data on which you're operating, you can store them as rows of the array:

B = [A; Asquared]

or as a table array:

C = table(A.', Asquared.', 'VariableNames', ["A", "A^2"]) % If you're using R2019b or later

C = table(A.', Asquared.', 'VariableNames', ["A", "A_squared"]) % R2019a or earlier
