Write a cell array to a textfile

This is a bit of a dumb question, I think, but in spite of using Matlab (and Octave) for years, I actually have very little experience in low level file handling.  Anyway, I have a file containing text and numerical data which I can read into a cell array using textread.  But there doesn't seem to be a comparable "textwrite" to write the amended cell array back to another text file.

So - what is the most foolproof way of writing a cell array, containing text and numerical data, to a text file? 

For example, suppose that every row in the array contains a first and last name, along with age, height (in metres) and weight (in kilograms), like

Leaonhard, Euler, 74, 1.6, 72

So each row in the array contains five elements: two string values (the names), one integer value, and two floating point values.
