Is there a way to get an 8 x 1 matrix instead of 8 x 3 using dec2bin or any other?

dec2bin (2 ^ n-1: -1: 0) - '0'

Thanks for the link.
This is what I get
n=3
b=dec2bin (2 ^ n-1: -1: 0) - '0'
ans =
1 1 1
1 1 0
1 0 1
1 0 0
0 1 1
0 1 0
0 0 1
0 0 0
But I want
111
110
101
100
011
010
001
000

string(dec2bin (2 ^ n-1: -1: 0))
This will be considered an array. The entries will be string objects such as "011". The entries will not be numeric.

Perhaps you want
n=3
n = 3
b = (dec2bin (2 ^ n-1: -1: 0) - '0')*10.^(n-1:-1:0).'
b = 8×1
111 110 101 100 11 10 1 0
Note that if you do this, then the only way to get the leading zeros is to format it as text again.

If you want 000 as output, remember, that this is not a valid decimal value. If you need the zeros for any reason, you have to stay at the char representation. Simply omit the -'0' part:
n = 3;
b = dec2bin(2 ^ n-1:-1:0)
The cannot be a 8x1 matrix.
