I have a 32*32 data structure. There are 1*1 structures in each of those 32*32 cells. However, i would like to extract all the binary data in the substructures and align them into one matrix. any one with some code that could help me do this please? Thank you

i am trying to write out something but just thought i needed help. this is what i have sofar. (2592,198) is the size of the matrix i would like to have my data in.(I hope this is what you meant by example)
file = zeros(2592,198);
s.data = load('Compressed.dat');
for i = 1:32;
for j = 1:32;
file = data(i,j);
file(:) = {s};
end
end

Try
x(1,1).data=1;
x(1,2).data=[2 1];
x(2,1).data=rand(2);
x(2,2).data=[1;2];
out=struct2cell(x);
out(:)

this is just part of the whole results. i dont want to crown the whole place with stuff so i just uploaded some of it but it all rather looks likes this. [1x90 char] '00000000100000000011000000010000000001111111110010' [1x90 char] [1x190 char] [1x310 char] [1x250 char] [1x150 char] [1x110 char] '0000000100000000010100000001100000010001000011001000000011111110100010' '0000000100000000010100000001100000000011000000111000000000111111100000' '00000001000000000101000000100000000011111111100010' [1x110 char] '0000000100000000010100000000100000000011000010001000000000111111010000' '0000000100000000010100000000100000000011000010001000000000111111010000' [1x110 char] [1x110 char] [1x110 char] [1x130 char] [1x130 char] [1x110 char] . . . .

If it is a cell array and cells contents have matching sizes:

So what i did was to use DCT to compress a 256*256 greyscale image using a 8*8 block matrix. the compressed data therefore comes out as a 32*32(256/8) data structure. i would like to align the extracted data and then the remaining gaps at the end of the matrix will be filled with zeros. Thats basically what i am doing. just in case you may want to look at the structure. http://ge.tt/7q04jkV/v/1

Thanks to Azzi and Cedric o was able to get a step forward. however my question now is, i have managed to extract all the binary digits from the structure and they are in a file. i would like to rearrange them into a matrix of 2592*2592. how do i do that? Below is my final code for extracting the binary digits(or bits??)
load('Compressed.mat'); %load compressed data
fid = fopen('saved_data.txt','w');
for i = 1:32;
for j = 1:32
fwrite(fid,I_runcode(i,j).code);
end
end
fclose(fid);
