String manipulation with printing of characters

26 views (last 30 days)
The question is:
Write a script that will prompt the user to enter a word, and then print the first character in the word. For example, the output might look like this:
>> Enter a word: howdy
The word howdy starts with the letter ‘h’
How do you print the first character? I can do the:
>> word = input('Enter a word: ','s')
I do not know to display the first character.

I think the following code should work
t=input('Enter a word: ', 's');
disp(t(1));

Try this and see whether it solves the purpose or not. I think it should work
t=input('Enter a word: ', 's');
char(t(1));
