Hi
I want to create a 1x60 cell array (60 different elements). The elements 1:10 each should contain a certain string, say 'hello', then 11:20 should contain say 'tree' etc. How do I do this effectively? Currently I am using different loops for each string, but that seems not to be very effective..thanks

Works on cells too.

But I would like to have something along the lines of
x{1:10} = repelem('hello',10,1)
so x{1} should contain 'hello', then x{2} as well etc. That doesn't seem to work..?

x = repelem( {'hello','tree'}, [10,10])
Or
x(1:10) = {'hello'};

a=cell(1,60);
a(1,1:10)={'hello'};
a(1,11:20)={'tree'};
etc...

Strings = {'hello', 'tree', 'third', 'fifth', 'sixth'};
C = reshape(repmat(Strings, 10, 1), 1, []);
