get char between two specified characters

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a string like '[Hello]'. Now I want to get only the text between the brackets []. The result should be 'Hello'. When the string is '(Hello)' the result should be empty.
I tried with regexp but was not successfully.
regexp('[Hello]', '(\w)')
ans = 2 3 4 5 6
But I get the same result with normal brackets in the string
regexp('(Hello)', '(\w)')
ans = 2 3 4 5 6
Can anyone help me?

r=r(cellfun(@(x) ~isempty(x),r))
out=cellfun(@(x) x{1}(2:end-1),r,'un',0)
