hello every one; how i can change this string into one row and multiple columns. for example:
daalo= {'000001001001010111100101111111001101001111001101000000010000001011011110100110101001010101000111001111110101111010010000110010111110111110000000000000000000'};
how i can change the format into;
daalo:{0;0;0;0;0;1;0;0;1;0;0;1;0;1......... until las digit?

@abdulkarim hassan: stop putting everything in cell arrays. Cell arrays are great, but if you don't need them then they just make your code more complicated and slower. Learn to use MATLAB's basic data types and your own code will be much simpler and faster: James Tursa's answer shows how using basic data types can be much neater code and much faster to calculate with.

Your syntax in the question specifies a cell array output of double values, so here is how to do that:
n = numel(daalo{1});
result = mat2cell(daalo{1}-'0',1,ones(1,n));
If you want a column result, then
result = mat2cell(daalo{1}-'0',1,ones(1,n))';
Do you really need a cell array containing individual double numbers for your downstream processing, and not a simple double array? E.g., would this be better for your downstream processing?
result = daalo{1}-'0'; % double row vector result
