I am trying to iteratively run a function, putting the output to a variable of the form 'CMi', where 'i' is an integer. I can easily work with variables of this form by running:

>>> varName = strcat('CM',i)

I am strugling, however, to put the value 'CMi' as the output for a function. In particular:

>>> [varName1, varName2] = function(inputs)

redefines my variable names, and:

>>> [strcat('CM',ii)] = function(inputs)

redefines strcat. How can I print the string value of varName as the target output variable name for a function? Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Thanks Walter. The eval command works great. I'm going to take the wiki's advice and move away from such variable name construction as quickly as possible.
