calculating the difference (in days) between successive dates

3 views (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I have the following sequence of dates
dd={'2-11-2008' '30-11-2008' '28-12-2008' '25-01-2009' '22-02-2009' '22-03-2009' '19-04-2009' '17-05-2009' '14-06-2009}';
Is there any code that could calculate the difference (in days) between two successive dates in dd?
To be more specific, first the difference '30-11-2008'- '2-11-2008' Then the difference '28-12-2008' -'30-11-2008' Then '25-01-2009'-'28-12-2008' and so forth…. Probably a loop would be a good choice as dd contains many elements in my case
thanks

out = diff(datenum(dd,'dd-mm-yyyy'))
