I am not sure the behavior is consistent. That is, I am not sure an element of
cell array is _always_ cell array.
Here is my point:
"
octave:1> a_vector = [1 2 3]
a_vector =
1 2 3
octave:2> for foo = a_vector foo endfor
foo = 1
foo = 2
foo = 3
octave:3>
"
.
I have created a vector called 'a_vector', and to denote that it's a vector
I've used '[', ']' delimiters. Elements of the vector are _numeric_ and as such
they are displayed in the loop body as numeric _without_ delimiters - makes
sense to me.
With my cell array, though its elements are _numeric_ too, delimiters _are_
used to display 'foo' in the loop body. And it doesn't make sense to me.
Regards,
Sergei.
