Hi,
i convert an integer to a categorical
a=[-1 0 1]
b=categorical(a)
now how do i convert b back to the same integers in a?
Just can't find the function to do this.
thanks,
steven

But, not recommended; the underlying content of a categorical variable aren't really numeric even if they are numbers. The representation internally is an ordered set of the integers 1:N as I'm sure you've already discovered via double()
>> categories(b)
ans =
3×1 cell array
{'-1'}
{'0' }
{'1' }

Gives the values of the categories that make up the unique elements but not the corresponding location in the original array.
