Indexing result of strsplit('My string', ' ')

20 views (last 30 days)
Why doesn't something like
strsplit('My string', ' ')(1)
work?
Is there a more elegant way than
x = strsplit('My string', ' ')
x(1)

No matlab does not allow indexing directly into the return value of a function (or any other temporary variable). There is not workaround other than assigning the temporary to a variable, as you have done.
Note that if you want the content of the first element of the cell array {} would be more appropriate
x = strsplit('My string', ' ')
x{1}
