How do I assign matrix of strings to matrix of numbers?

3 views (last 30 days)
Lets sat I have:
a1 = [A,B,C,D,E,F]
a2 = [5,8,2,9,2,1]
lets assume this are large matricies.
Is there a way that I can get A = 5 , B = 8 , C = 2 ...... without having to do it individually. As long as their location is the same I want to set them their respective variable
Please help and Thank You in advance!

Hi [A,B,C,D,E,F] = deal(5,8,2,9,2,1)
although for a large number of variables, giving each its own name is not a winning strategy. In that case it is better to leave the numerical values in an array of some kind and access each value with an index, e.g. Z(ind) for a vector Z or Z(ind1,ind2) for a matrix Z, etc.
