Hi!
I have a folder full of files in it and I want to save the name of files in an array. Each cell corresponds to a string of the file name. How can I do this?

dinfo = dir('YourDirectory');
names_cell = {dinfo.name};
You might also want to
strcat('YourDirectory', '/', names_cell)
if you want to construct the more qualified file names.

Use the dir command.
>> s = dir;
will create a structure with a list of all the files and directories. If you need help converting that info from a structure to a cell array, I recommend you post a second question about that.
