Locate entire word in cell given a specific pattern

1 view (last 30 days)
I am trying to locate an entire word in a cell, given a specific pattern.
I am giving the following example:
stringList = {'cell', 'bell', 'charm', 'eva'}
index = find(strcmp(strList, 'ell'))
The words 'bell' and 'cell' must be located.

regexp(strjoin(stringList),'[ell]')

Yes sure:)
Firstly, strjoin command gathers the content of the cell array within a character array so that it becomes proper to apply some calculations on it. Then, regexp command takes the first argument as converted, second argument means that it will search the entire input whether there are characters containing ell expression or not.
