I have around 10 variables and want to name the array according the variable.
e.g Variable 1 is '11234742' then the name will be Signal_11234742.
and when this variable comes again I should be able to put data into Signal_11234742.
How to do it.

may be these commands give help 1) eval('...') 2) num2str
but more interesting: May one variable (allocated memory) have two names (used under 2 names)? In C/C++, as I know, this opportunity was indeed...

Yes. If you instantiate an object of a class that is derived from matlab's handle class.

var1=11234742;
prefix='Signal_';
eval([prefix num2str(var1) '=' num2str(var1)]);

I would in general avoid this practice and use instead: Signal.s11234742 = variable
