I want to merge an array to a number. i.e., if
>>x=1:5;
do some operation on x and get the result like
>>y=12345
for that I have written this code...
x=1:5;
y=0;
for i=1:length(x)
y=y*10+x(i);
end
Is there any short way to do this ?

what about this x=1:5; 10.^(x(end:-1:1)-1)*x'

Better to use
10.^(length(x)-1:1:0)*x.'
If the poster could rely upon x being consecutive digits then the poster could just use '0' + (x(1):x(end))
